research, audacity and creation

TEXTILE AND INTERIOR DESIGN

is understanding space, chancing scale, introducing continuity into my thinking, longing for beauteousness… that’s what pleased me when I was approached to develop design.

FREE PRODUCTION

Longing is the beginning of everything… working with fibers means for me relationship, freedom and storytelling. Every organism is made of fiber structures – also the human being. I found heaven in paper, paper  –  vibration is communication. I found earth in felt, felt – a bounded relationship.
