Welcome to my homepage
As a child I became fascinated by the bright colours of stained glass. I remember being in awe looking at the stained glass windows in the Catholic Church, I did not hear what the priest said, and dreamed away staring at the colored windows.
Even when I was growing up, my eyes were always stained glass windows oriented, when they were near. I longed to go make yourself stained glass, but there was always a line of reasoning that stopped me. It seemed so far away and inaccessible to me.
In 2003 I pushed aside all reasoning and have contacted someone who made tiffany. This man was willing to teach me; I turned out to have predisposition to there. Because this man was already getting on age and did nothing more with glass for years; no interested parties in the family, He let me borrow his tools, that he has given me later.
Then I could go try it myself and was able to give my creativity. Several windows and window hangers you can see in my gallery. Grape branches containing processed glass mosaics; my "polished souls". Always trying out new things I now working with mixed media; glass mosaic paintings which different techniques are used for.
Most glass pebbles I make myself from glass platen; some stones I melt in an oven. There are pieces in which the processed glass soldered together, the tin I also use for lines and planes in my work. This gives a surprising new dimension with powerful abstacte.
Please look around in my gallery, have fun.
