When someone asks me if I still make crystal-glass ‘horizons’ like those in the Venice Biennale, I tell them yes, I still make them and will continue to do so.
In fact, when I make a line I always think of it as the horizon passing through the houses of the owners of these works. I imagine this line entering a house and then continuing out of it until it joins up with the one in my studio or the one I’m about to make. It is the ideal construction of the ‘horizon that accompanies my life’.
This is why my plan is one day to bring together all these pictures and, after having lined them up, to construct a long line never seen before. The names of all my collectors, who are real friends because they are the people who love and defend the work, are listed chronologically and so form an integral part of the project. So the work is constructed according to ‘sentimental’ principles. “Those I love are the real horizon of my life”.
