SYMBIOSIS OF OLD AND NEW
With my works i want to unite objects of use and objects of art to create a synergy of art and design.
The things which surround us have an effect on our thinking and also on our acting. If we change these objetcs or if they are changed by someone else, also the effect that they have on us changes.
Through the quality and particularities of my objects and their visibility in everydaylife I would like to influence the interaction between the observer and the object.
The focus of my work is the manufacture of upcycling-furniture and the creation of jewelry
For the creation of jewelry, historic techniques such as the use of Screw-presses or needle-etching build a cornerstone.
The furniture is built with different "thrown-away" things. Every discovered object hides its own prehistory and has an individual character. During the working process i consciously let myself into them. By doing so i give a new life to unused things through the use of both traditional/ handed-down and modern techniques.
