« Having studied the painting, I quickly dedicated myself to the work of the glass. A material which offers possibilities unequalled in term of light and colors. The painters always tried to get the light. I quickly took in my account this historic quest for the light.
I discovered the glass-making techniques in a studio which realized orders for artists in Amsterdam. This medium fascinated me and for almost 40 years I pursue my personal researches.
I worked out a particular technique of glass plates superimposing among which each is pigmented by powders of colored glass. This block of glass merged, revealed by the crossing light , expresses the color in three dimensions.
Our eye defines the physical, the scientific reality but our individual perception opens us, reveals us, teaches us who we are ».
