Statement

I love to play with the ornament. The history of the ornament is extremely thrilling. No other art form has been so cursed and loved, varying between elevated and banal, between overloaded and minimalist, ranging from cosmos to kitsch and elitist to popular. The mix is so colorful because people from all cultures and continents have contributed to it. Until today, ornaments have met the need for geometry, order, magic and adornment. I am a storyteller who uses the ornament instead of words. But there is always enough room left for the bearers, to discover their own story, to conquer the piece of jewelry and make it to their own personal piece of adornment.

I have a passion for materials of all kinds. I collect and archive my finds and some of them I keep for more than 20 years until I process them in a piece of jewelry. Every piece has its story. The material glass also excites me. I work with the hot glass and make glass blanks for my jewelry, which I sand myself in my studio. The cut glass stone is the starting point for every piece of jewelry. Another material I like to work with is wood. I like to be guided by given forms of branches, the structure of the wood. Working with wood is my "summer job". I work under the open sky and just need my hands and the carving knife.
