« Are other areas besides jewellery, present in your work?
My most recent collection Connectionary consists of handmade porcelain, treated as gemstones. Creating these porcelain centre pieces allowed me to explore the world of ceremic art and ceramic production. In general, my inspiration derives from day-to-day mechanical joints such as swivels, hinges and physical connections of objects, meanings I often explore different areas as part of my design process. » (Klimt02 interview)
