Native woods, preferably oak, form the basis for my objects.
I turn thin-walled vessels, some asymmetrical, on different axes. The finely sanded inner and heavily brushed outer surfaces and final surface treatment of the works expose the living structure of the wood. The individual grain of each object becomes not only visually but also haptically tangible. I like to play with the colouring properties of tannic acid, which is contained in oak wood, and thus obtain variability in the final surface colouring of my vessels.
