Glass artist; I live, work and dream in Bucharest, Romania. Miracle of life There’s no greater miracle, I think, than the existence of life. For us, living entities, life is probable the most fortunate event that has been developed by chance, on our little planet, as peculiar fragment of the endless process of the cosmic swirl. I try to catch and reflect in my work the miracle of life. Glass, as a fragile, still robust material, with its unique qualities, is suitable for representing life. They both share fragility, delicacy and yet an incredible strength. The degrees of transparency one can obtain from glass are both marvelous metaphors and good enough physical representations for the mysterious processes of life creation.

Miracle of life

There’s no greater miracle, I think, than the existence of life. For us, living entities, life is probable the most fortunate event that has been developed by chance, on our little planet, as peculiar fragment of the endless process of the cosmic swirl.

I try to catch and reflect in my work the miracle of life. Glass, as a fragile, still robust material, with its unique qualities, is suitable for representing life. They both share fragility, delicacy and yet an incredible strength. The degrees of transparency one can obtain from glass are both marvelous metaphors and good enough physical representations for the mysterious processes of life creation.

My search goes in three directions:
Beginnings
Birth
Life and death.

Life is diverse; so is my work. I try different techniques, intending to catch better the life’s ineffable. Nature has the freedom to experiment on a very large scale; I have only very limited possibilities.
