I see my work from two sides. One is the exploration of materials; the other is the content of my ideas.

The functonal forms in nature and science, put together, are those we find familiar. I see these most primal forms as roadmaps for everything we think and feel. The smallest can be a visual representation of the larger complexity. What is underneath the surface is what i choose to explore.

I try to question ideas about where comfort and beauty are found. The objects i make are my expressions of a new narrative.
