Social structures, rules, laws, educational measures, restrictions, dogmas, systems – these were the starting point for my research. Which social rules have shaped me, which have I adapted to? What changes us? What if we do not want to adapt? The transformation of thought into material; how is it reflected in the work? How do I react with the material? Is it the material that guides me or does the concept steer me? The hardness of the stone, its function, the points of connection, transition, surfaces of matter, inner and outer, soft and hard, meeting points on human bodies. And again, the return to the jewellery-wearing body as the basic form. The pieces are supposed to adapt, become part of the body – a body part. Disturbing or cosy feelings arise.
