Playing is a very important part of designing for me.  As a ceramist and product designer I see my workplace as a playingfield where I research different colours, textures, shapes and the combinations between them. 


My work method is a combination of stacking and assembling with different basic 

shapes. This way I can combine shapes and approach existing functions in new ways. 


Porcelain is a fascination for me and enhanced through my visits at the ceramic cities: Arita, Japan and Jingdezhen, China. I use the knowledge I aquired in my own desings and also when I manufacture objects for others
