ARTIST STATEMENT

My fascination with nature and architecture is clearly visible in my objects. Wind, rain, lines, stairs, trees, clouds, shadows, light. It's usually the combination of clear shapes and blurry lines, something familiar and something unassuming, that gets my interest. I often get to hear that I work with simple forms. I like the balance between simple and difficult, diffuse and clear and I think a simple form is not always simple in itself.

Plaster moulds are my main work. Whether I cast, blow or press I do it in moulds. The process starts with a thought. I sketch in my head and continue on the whirler(lathe), in plaster. I shape the plaster with tools. The tools are extensions of my hands and my thoughts. I mix the plaster. I poor it in the fenced cylinder on the whirler. I wait. I reflect on the sketches in my head. When the plaster is like butter I take off the fence and center it. And then I wait again. I wait for it to burn and harden. Sometimes I wait for a day. The plaster is easier to control when it is hard and dry. This is one of many things I learned from my teacher Janne. He called it “the hard way”. And it literally is.
