4. Small Series – a Poem of Purpose


I do not plan certain artifacts, neither I use certain material nor scale, but I design objects that have a story to tell or a purpose to exist. After a long creative process these objects are formed to a certain scale and are made of certain material.

The objects that I design are usually gentle and soft in their shape and existence. They are always unique – visually or in their content. The cooperation with the artisans is my primary objective when designing and producing small series.

I want the work to be mindfull and challenging. I want to put my soul into objects that I design. When I exercise new ways of thinking, my design can remain in use. This is when I have succeeded. Quality can not be replaced with quantity.
