I mainly work with metal and metal tubes to explore possible new expressions in the material. I carefully ponders the issues I address, and once I have a clear idea I go into my workshop where I proceed to create models and other experiments to develop my idea. I aim for objects with a sculptural expression. In my work I strive to create an expression that possesses the same depth as a work of art but also fits naturally into everyday life as a functional object.
