The mirror surfaces were still pristine in Finland in the beginning of the 1980s. There were no patterns or shapes on the surface of the mirrors. There were no skills to decorate glasses and mirrors in Finland, yet. As a result, I began to explore the opportunities of glass industry and using glass as a new interior decoration material with great enthusiasm.
I started to produce different colored and framed mirrors by engraving, painting and later with sandblasting. I called the works as a mirror board. When I was doing my works, my skills accumulated. I invented new ways to handle glass. As there was no training in this sector, I was learning by doing the hard way.
