Over the last 15 years I have developed my own unique relationship with the glass. As a medium, glass speaks differently to a glassmaker than to designers and artists. Glassblowers are in the unique position to touch the glass; to feel it move and react. It is a very personal, intimate connection. The fluid nature of the glass combined with the ability to form it, inspires me. The sleek, classic, high quality design that is traditionally known as ‘Leerdam Style’, also inspires me. By combining both form and fluidity, I’ve created my own style here in Leerdam…with a twist!
