Statement

My works always start out from sculptural ideas and their adaptation to the requirements involved in the wearability of jewellery. And here the limits of wearability (which are very differently assessed according to the individual) can be extended or even experimentally overstepped.

However, the borders between sculpture and jewellery are fluid. Hence this results very frequently in unwearable, pure “showcase pieces”, hybrids, which do not convince either as jewellery or as sculpture. I endeavour to avoid such outcomes and to create either jewellery or sculptures, but not chimeras.

My works do not transport any kind of message; they stand alone, for themselves, and communicate nothing apart from their appearance and workmanship. Thus everyone can find free, self-determined access to them, one that is not steered by specific conventions into a defined direction.
