Artist Statement
Object making has always been a natural progression for me as a designer, but not in the traditional sense of the trade. My work still follows the basic principles of design such as function, innovation and production. Currently, my design work incorporates important elements that for a long time were more expected from fine art: self expression, spontaneity, and emotional depth. Design inspiration comes from the love of the everyday object
 — the mundane, the gimmicky and the refined.

The excitement is in reinterpreting them into new forms suitable for small-scale production runs, defined by the principle of reduction and simplicity, while not diminishing the objects’ initial function.

My work aims to reinforce the dialogue that merges industrial design with contemporary art while creating unexpected moments of joy in our daily lives.
