Aspiration for simplicity is the guideing power of my work. Making things uncluttered takes a process of refining, all that is left is essential. Clean lines are beautiful and last a lifetime.

The years I worked with acadamician Tapio Wirkkala had a great impact on my work methods and production. It was in his design office where lines and shapes were approached with the precision of a sculprtor - the cirtue being bare essentiality.

Glass - melted sand, hot ice - can simultaneoysly be clear or translucent, coloured, colourless, light or heavy. In particular, I am fascinated by the threedimensionality of thick glass with its depth creating an impression of a small vastness.

The techniques are old, still one can always find something new. Glass is transformed into sculptures in the hands of the master glassblower.
