Nadia von Windheim loves glass for the many colours and textures this medium offers. She creates free-form decorative pieces, adding wire and beads. Wire is intriguing because it can be thick, fine, shiny, dull, coloured. She can bend it , bead it , bundle and scrunch it to create sculptures and jewellery. The diverse materials themselves become Nadia’s inspiration and motivation. They call out to her, forge an image in her mind, which her hands then forge into a tangible entity.
