In the early years my instructor told me once: if you want to carve out a bear in stone, then fully embody a bear. It's like a frequency that you let resound in your soul, as long as you're working on the form. The clearer this frequency is able to sound, the better you'll find your way. It excites me again and again to try out effects of shapes, details and materials. For me artistic creation is a process-oriented experience of my personality combined with an idea and the character of the material.

So each sculpture has its own demands. The intellectual clarity of an abstract form with its rigor is as true for me as the caricatural game with facial expressions and details of goblins, or the challenge to capture the characteristics of an animal or human in its posture and dynamics.
