I am interested in the blurred line between art and design. I create one-off unique pieces that fall in between the two. I put a little extra love and thought in these art-with-a-function pieces.
These lamps that combine soft and fragile paper with rough terracotta take inspiration from ritual masks and tools, that have been used to awaken the unknown.
Materials: slip cast terracotta, hand knot paper shade, brass and textile cable
Size: height 55 cm
By putting an energy stone in the middle of a table I wanted to explore my own approach to the healing stones. My feelings are a bit torn and even ironic. I’m not sure do I believe in the healing powers of the stones but then again I can't say with 100% certainty that they don't work.
Materials: natural stones, steel, brass
Do you remember the old fabric lamp shades with fringe edges? I love how they evoke the urge to run your finger through the rim. In these pieces I was exploring materials that invite you to touch them.
Materials: oak, glass mirror, textile fringes
For this work I was very interested on the idea of controlled coincidence. I used a method where water and colors form the pattern naturally on top of glass. First time I saw the final patterns was when I turned over the glass sheet and the paint had dried.
Materials: leather, glass, brass, acrylic paint, glitter
