My work is informed by the visual language of twentieth century modern art. Distilling the abstract forms and clean lines of modern art into my own self-imposed limited palette, my work focuses on visually strong shapes such as lines and circles. I find creativity through restraint, making iterations of my chosen shapes by varying the details. I have a drive towards design that is clean and crisp combined with a desire to push craftsmanship to higher levels. But it’s not all serious: a lightness of touch is present. Although my work uses quite a formal visual language, there’s an edge of playfulness that entices the viewer to come closer. My handmade pieces invite the viewer to handle them, feel their weight, touch their edges and explore their details.
