Materials are the medium through which I convey my messages and feelings.
They tell my story and offer a unique expression. A new piece always starts with a thought about the “what” - what I want to say and explore, with the emphasis on the path. It's an unpaved road. I do not really know where this path will lead. Processes take shape on the go. I experience the materials and try to bring them to their “edge” and to realms that surprise me. It is a balance between some level of control and guidance, and unleashing spontaneous processes. I work with various raw materials like gold, silver, silk, iron, and stones, using traditional and contemporary techniques.

Any material state has its own aesthetics and meaning.
I don’t think about the material as something that has to fill a space or a shape that I prepared in advance. The materials are my partners, and as
such they constitute an organic part of the creative process. It is a joined journey whose paths are eventually imprinted in the object. This is how the internal language of the work is formed.
I believe that when something holds an internal, independent, authentic, and coherent truth, then it is complete and beautiful.
