Sculpture is my first language. First I worked with clay for over ten years, then I opted for steel, a material that my father had used for his functional, agricultural inventions. Steel became my main material for the next 20 years and I invented a particular language using steel angle section to create large paper-like wall-flowers. Later-on I developed distorted, open-sided containers. These containers that do not contain are very close to my heart. It’s the emptiness within them that has become such an important part of my life through silent meditation, which I practice since 1983.

In 2006, out of the blue, I was offered a scholarship to learn to carve marble in northern Italy during a three months residency. Then followed an intense period of learning another language with both hands and brain. Steel had given me angular skeletal structures and the engineering side of my brain loved to solve geometric puzzles. The missing bit had been volume, which I obtained from marble.

Now I use both materials with departures into wax for casting into bronze. My work is best seen in reality rather than on 2-d reproductions.
