"Whilst my heritage is German, I am often drawn to Japanese aesthetics and work with techniques originating in the Far East, such as Kumihimo or Keum-Boo. I strive for well-designed pieces, mostly abstract, with an element of the unexpected: the off-centre, the unequal, non-matching and the odd."
The pieces are outcomes of a design process or may simply be the result of experimenting with different metal shapes or silk braids. It usually starts with a drawing, then a transfer onto the human body, it is then altered and finally translated into materials. Paper or metal models frequently serve here as design aids. Working with the human body is an essential part of this processes and the pieces fully come to life when actually worn.
