How would you define what you do?
I investigate beauty and human behaviour. How we see art, how we react, the role of objects and their stories in perceiving the world... My work consists of jewellery and objects, but I also see my exhibitions and publications as autonomous works of art.
What are your sources of inspiration?
Anything can be an inspiration. It can be art or natural museums, music, walking in cities or in the mountains. It can be something that I find in newspapers or the internet, the work of other artists, books, nature or culture. And then, during the making process, new ideas keep arising.
How do you set about creating your works?
Almost all of my work is metal cast using the lost wax technique. In casting, the archaic nature of working with liquid metal is appealing. But it is also the preliminary work in wax that allows a rapidity and directness that cannot be achieved when working directly in metal.
Do you consider your craft endangered?
I think there will always be a demand for metalwork but it's important to be curious and innovate to ensure the craft moves with contemporary times.
