At a first superficial look my designs for alter curtains and glass windows seem to be different from my painting work, more abstract and without any illusion of three dimensionality. But this is related to the qualities of textiles and glass, which demand their own expression. Making artificial glass windows I learned starting from the bottom in a three year’s apprenticeship and the laws of textile language I got from my mother, who once had worked as a weaver. This is the only kind of art I’m able and willing to make by order.
Most of my alter curtain designs were woven in the Parament Workshop in Eisenach, the town of St. Elizabeth, Luther and Bach at the foot of the famous Wartburg. In this workshop they're still able to work in the traditional techniques of the old days. If you're interested in a visit, click http://textilkunst-eisenach.de
