The series of pendants made in stoneware and covered with platinum paint and gold carat paint are the symbol of fragility. The newborn feet, often recognized in my works represent fragility aspect of us as humans. Fragile does not mean weak. Years ago in Norway I was told by an exhibition visitor that my works of baby legs and arms are offending him, he explained that the vikings in the old days wore dead body parts such as baby arms as trophies.
Wearing a little foot or hand for some might be fascinating and beautiful while for others may even be disgusting. Working on the borderline of art and design is a challenge. I constantly cross the borders to experience new meanings of art, design and craft and making it accessible for everyone who may want a glimpse of my way of seeing the world.
