Glass is my biggest passion. Glass is naturally about transparency and as a life theme for me it means openness and honesty. Clear communication. Glass as a material gives me the possibility to make sculptures that catch the light that moves through them. And also to include a part of the environment through the transparent sculptures I enjoy to sculpt with this complicated and wonderful natural material.
Is this a dance or a fight?
A dance with yourself, your dark and light side, deep down in your self.
Or a dance with the other? Passionate, loving; with attraction and rejection.
A play of the light transparent glass with the heavy dark weight of the lead.
First there were the leaden, bended creatures, and they transformed into happy and unhappy dancers.
Material: fusing glass and lead
Size: 12 cm.
There are Many other transparent materials and I made a lot of sculptures in plastic, epoxy and polyester. “Ovaria” is an example of putting an installation into a longer lasting object. I placed mummified potatoes into the round shape and the playful installations with the rolling balls where born.
After learning how to cast bronzes in the artists place in Nijmegen, the Elefant, I found out the bronze was not my ideal material to work with. Casting glas is different but at the same uses the same moulding techniques. I love moulding , measuring, firing and after this unpacking the works like an archeologist.
