Intro
I don’t separate my works as local or universal. Art work can be fed any source, but the result is inevitably universal.
What's local and universal in your artistic work?
I don’t separate my works as local or universal. Artwork can be fed any source, but the result is inevitably universal.


What do you expect when you show your work to the public (for example, with an exhibition)?
I have no expectation, just perform my art.


How important is the handmade for you in your development? What role does technics and technology play in your development?
Technique and technology are very necessary and important especially in problem-solving. But for me, the most meaningful thing is that my works are handmade. I think I can add my soul to my works in this way.


When you start making a new piece what is your process? How much of it is a pre formulated plan and how much do you let the material spontaneity lead you?
All of my works begin with a long thinking and dreaming process. Reading, writing, drawing, resorting audio and visual resources feed my imagination. Rather than creating a formula, spontaneity is more important for me. Because of that, I am open to surprises of the materials and to guide me.


Are there any other areas besides the jewels present in your work?
Yes, I also enjoy making objects and collages.


How important is wearability in contemporary jewellery? And in your pieces?
When I start to work on a piece, I don’t begin with the idea of being wearable. But I think, everyone likes to wear an art piece on their body. For this reason, I like to make wearable pieces too.


The last work, book, film, city that moved me was...
Patterns and poems of Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğolu, who is a Turkish painter and poet.


What/who is the biggest influence in your career?
My daughter.


Which piece or job gave you more satisfaction?
The most pleasant thing is that being able to touch art directly.


What is your source to get information?
The whole world and its contents.


Considering the experiences you have had over the years - if you could go back and give yourself a piece of advice for the start-up phase, what would that be?
Do what you love!


Can you describe your personality in 3 words, describe your work in 3 words.
It is hard to describe one’s own personality. But I can say two things about my works: emotional and souled.
