CONTEMPORARY GLASS SCULPTURE

Artist’s Statement.

I work with glass sculptures.

My main material is glass, I have been working with glass for many years. I work the glass hot, melting it using a furnace. Having finished the glass, I work other materials with which I finish the glass sculpture.
Sometimes I use iron or stone or wood.
Glass has unique physical qualities, it is a material obtained from the solidification of a liquid, for which the glass is an amorphous solid.
Glass can truly be a border between what exists and what does not exist.
Creating artistic sculptures with glass allows me to create a kind of balance between the object I created and what it should represent.
The change of a liquid ephemeral substance into a robust physical form and vice versa is very much in the nature of glass.
