"All materials have an inherent nature. When I'm working they tell me how to process them, how to feel their properties and know them better. It is very important to treat them with respect because each one is different. In my work as a sculptor I have received teachings from many people who have generously passed on invaluable knowledge, and wisdom from their experiences of life. To learn from such teachers gives me life, but it is also important and necessary to learn for oneself.
My eyes and my hands love the materials I use. Introducing new ones, new techniques, new tools, gives me joy and fulfillment."
