I make boxes in different kinds of hard wood, mostly Elm, Beech and Mahogany, and sometimes Bog Oak, Ebony or Burr Elm. As Metal I use Aluminium, Copper and Brass. I also often use Resin combined with the wood.
I aim for a very simple look.
Combining materials is important, even essential for me, as well as working with form, proportion, surface, colour and texture.
I start with an idea or a drawing of the box I want to make, but it changes during the process. I may add other materials or use other techniques than first thought. I enjoy the process and the silent language of materials.
