My work procedure is driven by materials and a discovery of their qualities. I construct pieces using both industrial methods as well as slow traditional crafts techniques exploring our connection with jewellery, and how visibly hand crafted objects play a defining role in what we perceive as precious. The brooch Broken White/Knækket Hvid is a totem for a Dane with a darker-than-average skin tone. The form is a fusion of a West African tribal mask and a Royal Cph porcelain plate with laced edges.
