Cătălin Hrimiuc considered glass the material closest to his vision. His works are sculptures because they follow the requirements of the three-dimensional space, of the perception from various angles, and the techniques of sculpture. His glass precints “incarcerate” the light only to free it afterwards, modelled and spiritually enhanced.
