What is Creacycle?
A collection based and inspired on recycled glass, to treasure all the left behind and forgotten pieces. So many beautiful glasswork is cast aside in a dump, such a waste! My mission is to recreate it back to life in your eyes and heart. All glass is created intuitive, what I feel in my soul when I recreate the piece, I will try to describe in a small poem or sentence . Let their story speak to you.
The glass I work with is either mouth blown or crystal. The techniques I use is engraving and painting. I work intuitive, pure from the heart, that means there will be only one of every piece. I love to engrave very detailed and free. See pictures on the right for what I have done in the past.
A unique hand engraved and painted mouthblown candle holder called 'guardian angel', accompanied by a poem:
"I will be here
Forever in song
When the voice lingers
when all seems gone
I am here
and I will always be
guiding you through life
when the eyes no longer see
I will be here
and I will always stay
in the treasured moments
of an ordinary day

A unique hand engraved and painted mouth-blown decanter, which is now being reused as a vase. The vase is inspired by the owner, her love of faith, the family and her strong and powerful personality:
'Mary holds a flower in her hands which represents the birth of Jesus and celebration of life and the connection with God. She reaches it to heaven, God, and it grows further upwards. From her body, flowers grow downwards, referring to the name Kamila ( the person who it was made for), which means: blooming and flourishing. Mary is accompanied by an angel, Gabriel - the messenger, who is connected with her and also takes care of her. Mary has an areole around her and in her headscarf, there are hidden stars that 'grow' with 'the flower' to heaven.

"Courage be kind for I will let you free into my dreams"
A unique engraved and painted candleholder called 'Rebirth'. Telling a story to keep believing even when all odds seem against you, a new life awaits.
"A star collapsed in the atmosphere
all her light shines into the unknown
and her energy bursting through the clouds
the secret of life is carved in her bones
The cold and warm air surrounds her
hopes and dreams wander in her sleep
wishes going from the surface to the sky
as her heart sings along in the deep
Nature's wonder when the night lightens up
When a falling star goes down to the earth
A beautiful spectacle of true beauty and strength
by taking a leap of faith, healing takes place
life prevails and she celebrates in rebirth"
