By using our energy we are capable of doing and creating anything we Please!
We had to express our feelings during the roller coaster ride that 2020 presented to all of us, in a way we know best … GLASS
Using an old and complicated technique “ MURRINE” that first appeared in the Middle East more than 4000 years ago and made famous by Venetian Glass blowers in the 16thCentury , Tina created a complete new style of work , exploding in colours to represent happiness , joy and nourishment on the example of the Honey Ant. This interesting and beautiful insect can teach us that we can make our own Honey, living in harmony with our surroundings and creating a happy space for us and others. Mother Nature has given us a chance to turn wrong into right. Recording History as it unfolds is a deep desire of Tina when she creates her work. The Honey Ant has also meaning and value for the indigenous Population of Australia and Amerika. Connecting with old and wise cultures is a constant part of Tinas Art.
