For me glass represents a fantastic medium for pictures and shapes. A material that is transparent and almost invisible is better that a blank canvas and can be shaped and filled with almost anything. A sculpture in glass can be looked at, into and through.

I’m using lamination to create some of my sculptures. It makes it possible to seal the engravings inside the solid form. I like to play with people’s eyes. The figure you see inside the sculpture is only a hollow space. I must admit that when I start working the bastards often start to live their own lives, and it isn´t always that the end result looks exactly as the original idea.

I usually don’t get my inspiration from glass itself, instead as so many other artists I get inspiration from nature. A form, a colour, and the movement in the body, and the subtle communication you can get with an animal that show the same curiosity as you do in the interaction.

When I moved to Australia from Sweden, I realised how similar the cultural mentality is. I guess both Australians and Swedes are nature romantics. We have to deal with nature in a respectful way, otherwise it will deal with us. We are not guests who watch and visit the nature once in a while. We are a part of it whether we like it or not.
