"I got a workshop at Holmegaard in Næstved in 1997 and spent my days between the studio and glass cabin, where a team of the most skilled craftsmen blew prototypes by my workshop drawings. Therefore I connect the brand with a sincere understanding of the material glass, where a number of people each with their own skills, work together to achieve the optimum in design.It is the same today.

"When I work with drawing new designs in glass, it is always with the glass' own nature in mind - because it fits so well with my in many cases organic design and precisely this is the glass so good at communicating. It may be a simply idea such as the cocoon wineglass series that I would like that one gets a sensual experience in the touch with the glass' stem, and therefore it has an organic shape. "
