In the process of working, I approach the different materials with the intention to establish a form of dialogue with it. I am trying to find shapes which have no predictable meaning of jewellery being. Mostly I look through painter‘s and sculpture‘s eye rather than jewellers. At the same time, the leading role in materials takes the metal or wood.
THE PLACE has the special meaning into my creation. It has both meanings of TIME and HUMAN. The most attracting point I am trying to keep in mind is identity-related to the special place. Also, the meaning of TIME is very significant. The combination of fragile and monumental materials interacts into the pieces I made. Furthermore, the values which have not depended on cultural or time changes for me are essential in contrast with human fragility.
