Homesickness (feel safe, secure)
This work is about shelters, my shelter, The base from where you can operate towards life.
The base where you feel secure, and you want to return to.
A place that is peaceful, with the element of healing the in-and outside of the body.
Therefore the house has to have a harmonic relation with nature. And the house to the body.
The house is mirroring the inner soul of its resident.
And so my jewellery pieces are mirroring my inner world. The pieces are my shelter.
Form is decided by building construction, partly abstract and partly throughout the process.
It's an interaction between the fysical and mental space.
Melancholy, transitory and feeling secure is the cement of my jewelry.
