Glass is part of my life for almost fifteen years. This is my big hobby, a good way of relaxation (I work as a kindergarten teacher). My life with glass started with lampwork. A big milestone for me was the first contact with blow glass three years ago. I instantly realised it is a technique I want to know and I want to do.

The first attempts were followed by many hours, a lot of ruined glass and great patience and persistence until I learnt how to blow beads. But the results encouraged me to carry on.

I love monochromatic simple shapes made of transparent glass. The beauty of this material excels the best in these beads. Combination of glass and light creates lovely images and glass becomes living material full of surprises and random beauty
