I am interested in creating space. My current work Balla is a meditation on movement and a translation of the repetition of circular motion into jewellery
Do you think that jewellery is being standardized? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
There will always be standardisation due to demand but art jewellery is completely the opposite and these times are really exciting.
As pieces of art, I’d like to think that my work is universal but I get inspiration from what surrounds me, the city I live in or the place I travel to. In that sense I believe it is in part really local.

What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
People response.
I am interested in people's reactions; I learn a lot from them, what they see and their own interpretation of my work.

Are other areas besides the jewellery, present in your work?
I believe that being an architect influences my everyday work.

The last work, book, film, city that has moved me was…
Palma, my home town, every time my plane lands.

A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me…

Is there any designer, jeweller, artist, you appreciate a lot?

What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction?
Do you mean of my work? I think it is still to come.

Do you read Jewellery Magazines? What is your source to get information?
I do, but more and more I get a lot of information online. My preferred sources of information though are still exhibitions and galleries where I can experience jewellery from various perspectives’ a photograph is never enough.

Do you discuss your work with other jewellery artists or any other person?
Yes, it is essential for me to share knowledge. I enjoy discussing my work with other artists and people interested in all sorts of art, not only jewellers. Learn from everything and everyone.

What is your first thought when you hear the word Future?
Endless possibilities.

What do you expect for?
I only ask for good health. Everything else will come.
