Historical Context:
"My work begins with a deeply rooted curiosity for raw materials. And continues with exploration of physical properties of these materials, usually wood, ceramic, or steel, while creating functional objects and pursuing minimal aesthetics. The creation of tools aids and streamlines my process and provides a necessary inventive outlet. I challenge the materials just as they challenge me. My work is the result of this struggle between a given media and myself."
