I am asked fairly often what inspires me to create my sculptures.
A question most probably every artist is familiar with.
Well, when it comes to my translucent sculptures the answer is easy. I am inspired by the sky, the clouds, by water in all its shapes, as well as by fire.
I am fascinated by the movement, the permanent change, the things that escape your grip.
I realise, that in some way it may seem a parodox trying to capture all this rigidly in solid stone..
My intention however is contrary. I don´t want to press the sky or the water into a rigid form.
Rather I desire to transform the seemingly solid substance stone into something moving, changing, ethereal…
Of course I know this is not really possible, but I try to come as near as possible to the “unreachable star”.
