New technologies play an ever increasing part in my working practice. The skillful manipulation of tools and process - the basis of making - is equally important for digital work and require an experienced hand. These augment and expand all aspects from the sketching to the making, digital technologies have a hand in it. Using the old together with the new calls for new design solutions and informs the resulting objects. Traditional silversmithing techniques interact with rapid prototyping parts and the virtual 3d space of the CAD program feels like an extension to my workshop. The pleasure is in the making wherever and however it happens.
