"As long as I remember I was into art. I studied and practiced drawing, painting and jewelry and for years I kept it on a small (yet consistent) fire as a hobby. I was drawn as magnet to the glass material and immediately fell in love with it. I'm fascinated by glass because I find it a manifold material. It's a daily life casual material yet has the ability of becoming delicate, refined and elegant and can be played with in an infinite possibilities. Glass has a sense of vitality. It's a living material evolving all the time that comes from nature and can merge back in to it. Glass beads are like people for me. They have movement inside them, look awake, moving, bubbling, winking, and restlessly jumping. There is no stability or fixation about them and each one is a bit different and has its own personality. Glass has an honorable part in the history of jewels and art objects and has had a peculiar role in the Mediterranean culture. For me it's a challenge to make my own mark and be a part of this ongoing way of preening."
