Statement

My motto is as Otto Kunzli said: "One always has to find the appropriate material, the right technique to bring out the original idea with persuasive harmony."
 
I am interested in creating contrast and harmony among concepts, form and color through the process of experimenting, searching, researching & playing with the ideas, materials, forms and techniques. I am as well very much interested in how people use and develop ornamenting habits from the interaction with daily materials has been a constant source of inspiration for me. I try to utilize this richness I find in everyday materials together with precious materials to achieve contrastingly simple solutions that resonate in harmony.
 
'Compass Rose', 'Doily News' and 'DoilyMoily'
These works commonly incorporates mundane patterns and ornamentations that are persistently present in our daily environment. While the materials I use vary greatly, the forms reflect my interest towards mankind’s uninterrupted engagement with ornamentation since prehistoric times. Their forms and materials may alter in response to changing times and cultural context but the idea of ornamentation persists in all. I reinterpret this tradition from my angle, using my forms, materials and color.
 
'Yaz'
It all started as an experiment of electroforming. And I love orchids. They blossom beautifully and fade beautifully. I loved the forms the flowers were taking as they dried on the stems so much that I left them untouched. Later I electroformed dried orchids with copper and silver and painted with spray metal paint.
