WORD OF THE ARTIST
"While making furniture out of walnut, cherry or maple tree massive, I became aware of this noble nature's material ability to feel and talk back. In moments of this strange, but beautiful interaction unique pieces of furniture were born. Built for eternity, with great care, filled with energy of its creator for those who know how to appreciate hard-work and want a piece of pure nature in their homes.
Following the grain and rings, the interaction altered. Sometimes I just listened and followed their rules, and at times I had to tamed them. In this human-nature interplay creation of pieces sculptured in wood, with unusual shapes, lack of symmetry, even if sometimes at the core of idea it seemed impossible, happened."
