His objects consisted of complicated compositions of slumped, sunken and cut hollow glass, a technique being unique in the world.
The artist is a master of light, depicting the sublimity that occurs in nature in his sculptures. He expresses his sensitivity to miracles as a person and artist.
His simple, nearly minimalistic forms creates unreal spaces with mysterious feeling or creating objects out of glass in impossible positions denying gravity.
