“I see my work from two sides. One is the exploration of materials; the other is the content of my ideas.
The functional 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 and strive to understand.
I try to question ideas about where comfort and beauty are found. the objects I make are my expressions of a new narrative..”
