I am a blacksmith and a designer. I have been working with metal since 1999, first as a artisan of blacksmithing and since 2003 as a designer. I am interested in traditional craft methods and I try to merge these methods to my work as a contemporary designer.

I’ve collected a lot of traditional craft skills when traveling and working in Namibia and South-Africa. Local artisans there often work with really low-tech devices and have little if any materials to use in their work. They manage to produce items which merge traditional craft methods with contemporary materials. I find this inspirational.
