By playing I learn,
by playing I discover,
by playing I create.
By playing with colors, materials and forms I arrived at using enamel and glass in a mixed technique. Enamel and glass have the same substance, historically; Egypt is the first to process glass and establishes enamel technique.
The colored glasses I use have been through a heating process (800oC) in order to take the shape I want. In that way, sometimes new color combinations are formed. Every jewel by this technique is unique and can not be copied. In most jewels, I use the same metallic shape, as a base, in order to explore the color and glass shape possibilities, which will give in every piece its unique personality.
I first came close to glass as a material, in 2003 when I practiced stained glass by making windows and lamps. I have a strong interest in this material, it is freeform, something between fluid and solid, it has many shapes, many roles. In high heat conditions, the glass melts, like the metal does, allowing the artist to form it as he/she wishes.
