Intro
The shapes in my work are universal due to my inspiration in the nature and old cultures, the way I use these shapes in my object and the material I use are makes it singular.
 Do you think that jewellery is being standardized? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
Yes I think it is being standardized like art has also its own standards and waves.
The shapes in my work are universal due to my inspiration in the nature and old cultures, the way I use these shapes in my object and the material I use are makes it singular.
 

What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
When people look at my work they can open their mind to another way of seeing porcelain and jewellery.
I would like the public to realize they are not just buying jewellry but also a sculpture.
