A few months ago, when social contact was still allowed before the Covid-19 crisis, I had a fantastic studio visit. Fredrik Haren, a creativity explorer who travels the world to meet artists and creative people, stopped by my studio in Barcelona. We had an eye-opening discussion about art.
His inspiring inquisitive mind made me dig deep into the reasons that drive my glass art. I embrace “failure” as part of my artistic process. I believe it’s crucial to grow as an artist.
