ARTIST STATEMENT

The fascination with nature and architecture is clearly visible in my design language. Wind, rain, lines, trees, clouds, shadows, light, color. It is usually the combination of clear shapes and lines, something familiar and unassuming, that catches my interest and I often get to hear that I work with simple shapes. I like the balance between simple and difficult, diffuse and clear. And I think a simple shape is not always obvious. Sometimes it takes several months to produce a shape and I often work parallel with different projects, mainly to get distance to the process and then there is a lot of waiting time when working with plaster, ceramics and glass.

My practice is very much about proportions and angles, every millimeter choice will both be seen and felt. It is important to understand this and at the same time adapt to the different qualities of the material. I choose to do my sketch work in plaster, usually on the lathe. The methodical and determined way of working that is needed to work with turning in plaster suits me more than the exact and careful in sketching with a pencil on paper. There is a lot in the physical feeling of a form, the three-dimensional experience is for me one of the best parts of making and being a maker.
