In my work I focus on products that stimulate and intensify interaction with our environment. In my graduation collection I focussed on our natural environment. What people do, roaming the countryside, seems to be not very different from what their prehistoric ancestors did. They ferret about, picking up stones, flowers and leaves, sometimes taking them home. The former need to survive by the fruits of hunting and
gathering is no longer there, but the pleasurable gratification of a seemingly innate curiosity remains. My designs are intended to enhance the pleasures of wandering and rummaging in nature and to help materialize, store and preserve the memories these pleasures leave behind.    


The materials I use are brass, felt, synthetic paper, polyester and wood. My designs are simple. Production in substantial numbers would be no problem.
