Graal has become how I express myself as it allows me the room to work and develop my own personal visual language.The graal technique is difficult to master and as a technique it is challenging, which allows me to continue to develop as an artist.
My work tends towards the naïve and I spend an inordinate amount of time on pencils and etching even before the actual glassblowing begins.
The pictures that are created on the glass through the graal technique are direct, everyday and sometimes even funny. I can find inspiration, for example, from a party, two brothers, a cat in a window, loneliness, outsiders and life in rural settings.
Silver and gold as materials tend to come again and again when I work.
