"I've always used words to express my feelings and emotions. Doing the same using a wooden object is, for me, a complex challenge. An object alone is like a word out of its context: we can define its meaning but likely it won't elicit any emotion within us. My vessels work the same way: depending on the lighting, the context and the space they're placed in, they inspire different emotions. So my pieces are relationships: the object, the scenery, the light and the person observing are all bound to relate, or there won't by any real communication."
