There is a quality in glass that is generated by the glass itself. Those qualities are elusive, intriguing and seductive. I make them as much a part of my work as possible. I work with thick glass because it exhibits qualities which interest me--depth, transparency, reflection and refraction. My attention to strong form is a very important factor in my work. This thought coupled with the cold work to cut, polish, engrave, highlight surfaces using lathes, merkers, dynafiles and flexible shafts incorporating stone and diamond wheels and other various tools evident in the canted forms and anklets, gives my work a unique presence.

I was born and raised in the Czech Republic, a country with a long tradition of beautiful glass made with impeccable craftsmanship. I make my body of work from the highest grade of optical glass which I grind, polish, laminate, color, and sand blast. Every piece is one of a kind, and is the result of hours of labor. My work is inspired by clean geometric shapes. My pieces feature bold colors and crisp lines that optically reflect on themselves and refract light creating kaleidoscopic results. I ultimately seek a balance of symmetry and asymmetry, shape and color.

Industrial architectural landscapes and the restless energy of civilizations point the way for this body of work. Multipart graphite molds are used as a tool to reinterpret architecture in blown glass. With a jazz-like sense of improvisation, I compose each mold from a large and growing library of hand cut graphite. As a result, no two compositions are alike. Glass is gathered onto a blow pipe, cast into the mold and then inflated to create a softly flowing interior surface. Once cooled, the resulting deeply dimensional blown forms are cut open and apart, polished and thoughtfully recomposed within an integral metal armature of anodized aluminum and stainless steel. I also make a series of related sculptural vessels that were the genesis of the current sculptures. All works are one of a kind.

The luminescent qualities of glass appeal to me as it responds to light. I am drawn to the potential of a material that can vary from a translucent to an opaque medium in a brilliant range of colors and gradations. I create blown glass using Swedish overlay techniques layering colored glass in the walls and on the surface of the glass forms. I carve the surface of the pieces with diamond wheels to remove layers of glass and expose colors within the piece. The blown pieces become the canvas for the carving process and the carving becomes the core of the design in each piece. Through this coldworking process I have been able to explore the potential of the material and focus my artistic vision.

I use conventional glass materials in unconventional ways to decorate the interior surfaces of handblown glass vessels. This includes tumbling glass cane inside vessels to create fused nests of glass and applying silver and copper leaf, by hand and while the piece is still hot and on the punty, to the interior surface. Fusing the metal leaf to the interior in this fashion allows the metals and original colors of the vessel to interact and create somewhat serendipitous and new colors and patterns. It is this balance between serendipity and control that is at the core of my work and motivates me to try new things.
