Both the use of wood and ornamentation in art goes back thousands of years. Wood is probably one of the oldest materials used in the creation of art. Ornaments can be found in all eras and cultures. Gold brings preciousness as well as something magical and fascinating to art.

I find the wood for my sculptures as driftwood by the water or as “death wood” in the forest.
Often the type of wood can no longer be determined and the woodworking is sometimes easier or more difficult.
The shape and character often develops in the working process.
