Glass not only serves as a material for my studio practice but also a way of thinking. My works are motivated  by the relationship between glass and language. The sensuous linearity of glass has always fascinated me. The fluidity of molten glass is tender like the forms of body figures. Glass cools down and hardens and the air captures its graceful choreography. Syllables slip through our mouth, writing runs through our hands. Language has characters like glass. Soft during the delivering, formalized after time. My tongue is made out of glass and I whisper through the liquid words. Inflates and deflates the bubble with my stories to tell. Through my art practice I discovered the linguistic variation with glass.
