Much of my work combines both formal and functional elements while exploring fragility and minimalism as a means of introspection. Taking cues from Japanese and Scandinavian design ideals, I am drawn to the beauty of simplicity and subtlety.

I strive to balance these austere qualities with a discreet complexity through details and craftsmanship. I hope my pieces evoke a sense of quietude and contemplation.

The nature of each piece invites the audience to explore the hidden intricacies crafted in my work.
