In my work I observe and experiment, connecting ideas and objects in new constellations. I observe glass, the traditions and habits connected to glass, examine its behavior to raise questions about reality and expectation, and suggest alternative uses and interpretations. Drawn by my interest in science, social and cultural habits, and abnormalities and their influence, I connect abstract ideas with material observations, fusing materiality and concept, craft and idea.
