Sculptures and objects in glass, stone and wood

Because water fascinates me, I started working with glass, for I found a similar light refraction in there. Designing in glass however, offers more opportunities. Although I still find my inspiration in water.

Before the final sculpture is created, a process of sketching, drawing and photographing takes place. Besides glass, stone and wood are my favorite materials to work with. The natural look of those materials is being combined or confronted with the transparency of glass. To implement my ideas, I like to choose mathematical shapes like circles and triangles because these are objective. Rhythm and transparency are important elements to me. I attach a symbolic meaning to the circle and the spiral, which often recur in my work.
