I was born and raised in the Czech Republic, a country with a long tradition of beautiful glass made with impeccable craftsmanship. The process I use is called cold-working. I begin with a raw piece of glass that I then I grind on various flat wheels with different grades silicone carbide, then polish on a felt wheel with pumice and cerium oxide. Once the piece has been brought to a perfect polish, I can then color, sand blast, and /or laminate the glass to achieve my designs. My work is inspired by clean geometric shapes and architectural forms. Each piece features bold colors and crisp lines that optically reflect on themselves and refract light creating kaleidoscopic results.
