Artist Statement:

As many others I am inspired by nature. Not in the first place by its shapes and colors, but mainly by its structure. It is amazing how mathematic these structures are build up (the head of a sunflower, corals, the marrow in bones) while they still look so organic. I just can’t stand the temptation to steel nature’s examples to construct my jewelry.
