I’m fascinated by overcoming technical problems. I start with the limitations of “table” or “cabinet” and then within those boundaries, see how far I can go with it. I like to push those boundaries. What is a piece of furniture; what is a piece of art? Can the two be combined?
For me, art has to show superb technical ability and skill. Artists have to work extremely hard to develop their skills before they can develop a unique style. Creativity can only come if you first aim for perfection, and then expand upon it.
I want to make something that a client can have in their home – they come home from work, and it’s not just another piece of furniture, but something that enhances their life. We should choose our furniture not just for the function, but also in the same way we would choose a piece of art – to enhance and transform our lives.”
