"I love when things fall into place aesthetically and technically. Love the focused contemplation, when I start from scratch and work form and function up. My language is minimal, but with incorporated surprises. As when two rings are alike, yet dissimilar: one being chunky, the other slim. One with a stone, the other without."

”Jeg elsker når tingene falder i hak æstetisk og teknisk. Elsker den fokuserede fordybelse, når jeg starter fra scratch og arbejder formen og funktionen op. Mit sprog er enkelt, men med indlagte overraskelser. Som når to ringe er ens, men alligevel uens: Den ene buttet, den anden smal. Den ene med sten, den anden uden.”

'By using organic and fluid forms, curved elegant lines and a strong graphic idiom I create objects for the senses. I find great pleasure in designing for mass production as well as limited series or one-offs, and the way a piece of work is made is always of great interest to me. Technical considerations are not a hindrance to my creativity, if anything they feed into the development of a design.'
