The sky and its colours – changing, impermanent, with a rich range of colours and shades – inspired me to "weave" glass kilims. I created a collection that reflects my admiration for the sky.

I used the principles of traditional crafts of woven kilims, adapting them to work with glass. Glass tubes filled with coloured powder, "laced" with colourless rods, which, reflecting the light, affect our perception of colour.

The glass kilims change as does the sky. Depending on the angle of incidence of light and the point from which we see the work – every time they look different. The colours of the "fabric" I have made will astonish the viewer with the variety of shades – it is the light that makes their outstanding beauty.
