My work is inspired by the stories and characters in the Finnish folklore epic ‘the Kalevala’. Organic
forms and textures found in the Finnish forests and woodlands
- where many of these stories take place – are also important source material and I try to replicate
these in my work. The fluidity of metal when it is worked suits the concept of my work which is why I
choose to use a lot of traditional techniques such as raising, forging and chasing in my pieces.
