Motto:

The starting point for my work is glass cutting in all its diverse forms. The essence of the craft, the imprint of the grinding wheel, together with the straight and rolled surfaces, are the basic shapes of my objects. The glass and its optical effects peak in the distinctive, captivating colours of the raw materials used.
