„The transparency of glass to me acts as an initiator for the creation of my glass objects. It is the discovery, the invention of something that I bear inside of me. The implementation in glass, combined with other materials, serves as a means of realizing my ideas. During the process it is of particular importance to me to preserve the primal character and not weaken it by superficialty.”
