“I really love to develop and create new things. It doesn’t matter if the piece is one of a kind, limited edition or a product of serial production. I get excited and interested by working with different materials.
I’m doing a lot of modelling and prototyping by hand carving. It’s definitely the best way to design smaller products and objects, as It feels great to make models with your own hands. It’s up to you how far you push the limits of the material while searching for the right proportions and shapes.
It is inspirational to transfer the strong imprint and beauty of nature into wood by bringing to the fore its most fascinating structural and aesthetic features. Shapes, scales and different types of surfaces come into being by studying landscapes moulded by humans, the climate and nature in different seasons is seen from different distances and perspectives.”
