One week after finishing my glassblowing training I started my two years journey around the glass globe. For food and a place to stay I worked and traveled together with my colleague Franca Tasch in Europe, America, Australia and Asia. All our adventure are documented with a blog, a video and a book.

By the huge possibilities to work with glass I am interested in the basic occurrences. Temperature differences for example provoke tension within the glass and this creates beautiful structures which I try to capture. Trying to create these cracks in the glass requires constant observing of the material and is a perpetual balance between the broken glass and a glass that is in one piece.

2014 - 2017

All of the 38 different shapes are made in Japan 2014. They are all blown and shape by myself, between 8 to 16 cm high and 7 to 13 cm wide. Some of them are completly closed and others reminds to daily dishes. All of them are playing in proportion and space.
Eight shapes (nr. 8, 11, 14, 20, 28, 32, 37, 38) I select to print them onto handblown glass panels of Lamberts.

Thanks to the Alexander Tutsek Foundation.

Shades, denseness, glades and interspace becomes an incomprehensible vision. Inspiered from the nature I take details and work it out to glass objects or silkscreen prints on paper. Here as a showcase are the glassobject Blue Motion (29,5 x 24,5 x 13 cm) and a print on paper Inversion in Nachtblau (43 x 61 cm, 110 g paper).

July - October 2018

There is a 60 x 110 x 5 cm sized orange glass panel underwater installed. The point of view for the visitor is a stump cut to a rectangle and colored orange at the riverside.

On the face of it you see nothing. You have to wait for the light and search for the angle to see the orange glass panel appearing under the water surface. A hidden sculpture in the nature. Like many things in the Bavarian Forest.

This was my first sculpture in the nature made for the exhibition Glas unter freiem Himmel, Galerie am Museum, Frauenau.

Here We Go
Made out of three different parts, which are connected to each other and mirrored on every side. The different angles allows you to see different perspectives of your surrounding area. Parts of the surrounding area get mirrored and dissappers itself.
