  1. Jelena creates magic made of her artistic brilliance and the most beautiful material – glass.
    She incorporates the fluidity of an emotion and a meaning within her sculptures, therefore capturing that one crucial moment of existence and making it vivid, visible and touchable.
    While sculpting, Jelena infuses her strenght, courage, intelligence and above all her passion for life into the glass that silently starts to whisper in colours and shapes.
    Jelena is such an exceptional person and an even more extraordinary artist.
    Draga Jelena, divna si!
