How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?
"My most creative moments are born in total isolation from the real world, something that I can only achieve during a night sleep. My most commont creative process begins during my night sleep. I can find myself waking very early (4 am) with super-fresh-exploding idea. This idea is transformed imidiately to rough sketch and brief explanation (written in the dark...) and brought to my working desk afterwards, with my mornign coffee. From my desk it may turn into physical shape in my workshop, althought many of these ideas will stay in the small sketchbook."
What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?
"I want them to be surprised, and to make them curious - I want them to stop for a moment and to try to understand - what kind of material they see? I want them to understand immediately that they see a natural material- which has been manipulated by hand and brought new image to known material ."
What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?
"After completing one of my first jobs, (which was wall tiles made of rough gray concrete) I was asked by one of the residents of that big office- "How would you paint in now? with a nice white creamy paint?" He just thought that these minimalistic and brutal panels are some technical item on the wall..."
"I chose concrete as a main theme in my work. I manipulate it and combining it with other materials, and I discover new posibilities with this material every day, and this is something that I love in this material."
"In my eyes,what can make a space special is a story. The story can be told verbally but also by different approach for lighting, it's color pallete tone or by a special object. I think that patient and deep look into a space can tell a lot and make the space unique."
"I'm product designer and concrete artisan. Combining these skills together, are letting me to create unique design thru material exporation. I can imagine and dream and actually to bring this idea to life!"
