I was born in Leipzig,Germany and worked as a Civil Engineer to the age of 26 .
After meeting some Glass blowers from the idyllic Glass Village of Lauscha in the Thueringa Forrest and been invited into their Studios, I found the one and ONLY thing I wanted to do. Blowing Glass.
One of these Artists became my very best friend and Mentor.
It was a rocky but intense and interesting ride but I loved every bit of it.
The medium Glass led me to the Artisan Village of Ahrenshoop at the coast of the Baltic Sea.That’s where I build and started my first Studio. 1995 I migrated to Australia and started my second studio in Bundaberg at the famous ” Schmeiders Cooperage ” and lived at the beautiful seaside Village of Elliot Heads.
After working on a big commission for the Ramada Resort in Harvey Bay and the contact with my new partner in crime and glass , Tina Cooper , her Glass Magic pushed me even further in the world of Glass and we haven’t even scratched the surface after 30 years in trying to understand this Beauty.
