 sculpture                                                            

 

What do I do? Normally I try to give the stone a fitting form using the means available to me. The work process opens my eyes and my perception. While I am working – chiselling, polishing, and making dust – new ideas arise for the next forms. For me the work process is at least as exciting as the finished sculpture. The form which remains at the end tells of its conception, revealing or mystifying – for at the end a small secret always remains. The form needs to have a certain power, it needs to breathe and be alive, to attract the observer’s attention. I see my work as constant practising, working at my manual skills as well as tackling the material. And stone is my favourite material to work with. Marble, granite, limestone, alabaster … the palette is infinite, so it always presents a new challenge to find the most appropriate form.
