Marta Edöcs

As a child I collected glass beads.  I was proud to own them and make jewelry of them. It was years later when I started to make glassworks in my own studio. The joy and playfulness took me back to my childhood. I’m playing with surfaces, colores and transparency. I’m much more interested on shapes, on lights inside the piece than on the typical shiny surface of glass.
Inspiration is all over, I keep my eyes and heart open. My works  capture feelings and there is often a message in my pieces. I’m allways looking for harmony. I like clear lines, simple rules.
In my jewelry objects I combine glass with silver. I try to create eye-catching objects, that are still comfortable to wear. I wish that people who see, touch, or wear my works feel as special as I feel creating them.
