About

My passion is wood!!

I really became aware of that as I received some carving knives as a christmas gift. That was in 2011, when I was 25, and since then there weren't many days I did put them aside.
I grew up in a family of carpenters and was therefor always surrounded by wood, but only as a raw material for building. My fascination for it I found in nature, by becoming aware that each tree has its own character, its own history, that each species has its reasons to have this special kind of wood. They are alive and this life is captured in the wood I use for my carvings. When I cut through it with my chisels, the trees story becomes revealed. In the annual rings I can see good years and bad years, there are intergrowths, they are like scars on the skin giving each piece a truly unic character, the coloration sometimes remembers me of the fruits they are wearing and that I'm eating, from the character I can see how fast or slow it did grow, or if the tree needed to be solid or flexible on the other side...
All this I try to keep alive in my designes, in the way I work and maybe even in the way i live.
I have my cabin in the woody hills of germany and choosed to live a simple life with the rhythm of nature. I work where I live, I dont have working time or someone who tells me when or what I have to work on next, so it all mixes together and becomes thereby very personal. Each piece is made because I choosed to do so and not for making money wiht it (although I have to admit that as a side effect, earning something with it, is also nice :)
Every piece I carve is meaningfull to me and sometimes it is even hard to give them away. That is why I truly feel honored when someone decides on one of my carvings, as it is not just a confirmation of my work but also of the whole way I try to design my life :-)

Therefore, thank you for making it possilble!!!
