My passion for making glass art started after I retired and suddenly had ‘a sea of time’ to explore new horizons. The choice for glass art was made almost by default. When I stumbled across an introductory course in glass making, I thought I’d give it a try. And I was hooked right away.

For making my objects I draw inspiration from the things that interests and excites me: nature, science, travel, humanity. But my passion for glass is as much about exploring new technical skills as new ideas. In my recent artworks I use metals like brass, copper and metal mesh and all kind of metal oxides in the hope to create fascinating structures and color patterns.

I hope that by showing other people my artworks, I might inspire them to think, or create, or contact me for a chat. It’s an invitation for dialogue.
