Why is nature so present in your work?
Nature is fascinating. Since many of our materials comes from nature, the observations help me to understand natural processes which I then implement into my work. I also see it as more genuine way of working with silica-based materials.
What does the Dueodde series express?
The works encapsulate the mood of white sandy beaches on the island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea, where I studied. Dueodde is the ideal place to look inward, reflect on a state of mind and revitalize universal memories, where the nature is put back on the agenda.

Why did you change from blown to kiln-worked glass?
For me it is important to experiment with new ideas from day to day. In the shared studio space where I work - Luftkraft Glasstudie - we have several kilns, a cold shop, and a place for making moulds. Therefore, it felt very natural that I started to focus more on kiln-worked glass.
What do you like most about your profession?
I like the diversity in working with glass, and that it can take many shapes and forms. There are several ways and techniques to create a piece. It can be challenging to work with glass but it allows me to combine different methods to achieve the desired expression.
