"My aim is to harness materials in such a way that they flow and take shape without abandoning functionality; and to create pieces that stand out and define themselves. I want to strike a balance between usefulness and beauty, and to respect materials and their qualities. I also want to highlight what is beautiful and ugly, good and bad, and capture that in a useable object, which must be timeless. The idea is to attain the freedom that lets the creative process flow until it loses control of itself, making things with my hands, starting from nothing. Journeys, stories, memories and emotions are the subject of my work."
