A recurrent feature throughout my works is my interest in ornamental statements, where the issue lies in the interplay between patterns, surfaces and spaces. I often take as my starting point principles inherent in natural structures by recording, transforming and
simplifying elements. Both in objects and in jewelry, I often plot my patterns onto basic
forms that are strictly geometrical.
The works are executed in precious metals, and are developed with the time-consuming process of sawing out patterns by hand or of drilling small holes that give an illusion of lines. I actually experience the working process as meditative, and wish this aspect to be communicated in the visual expression.
My hands-on experience together with a broader computer knowledge now allows me
more freely to use mechanical techniques, such as laser and water jet cutters.
