Julius Weiland

My studio is my place where I’m trying to get things done. It’s usually too loud, too cold or too hot. At home I do sketches and develop my ideas.

What I do in one sentence: Setting the frame for the unforeseeable.

Why I didn’t get a proper job: My father was an artist and all of his friends too. So I studied industrial design to do something different then him and maybe later get a job – but only to find out that I was also more an artist then a designer.

An artwork I dream of and I would get accomplished if space, time and money were abundant: A sculpture made of glass that would be big enough to live inside.

Why I do what I do: The best moment is when I don‘t think too much about it. I always try to develop my work and look for new challenges. This way it keeps me going and it never gets boring.

Artists, I have on my watch list (and why): Far too many to be mentioned here. There are so many good artists out there.

I am afraid of running out of time too soon.

How I want to be buried resp. words I want to be written on my tombstone: I would like to be buried in the nature, like on a cemetary in a forest.

Studio visit, and glass production at Berlin Glas e.V. in cooperation with glass blower Jesse Günther.
