"I have been working with the elements for a while now. Fire, water and soil gives the wood different color tones with time. I basically put the wood into a fire, place it into a lake or dig it down into the ground and wait for the right look. Then I use nothing but ax and knife to create different shapes.

 

I have chosen to keep everything very simple. No machines, no electricity, I can be anywhere doing this, free, happy. Therefore, the options decrease on what is possible to produce which may lead me to develop and go deeper into what I can produce, spoons for example. Not having so many choices has been good for me. I split my time between Stockholm and Tångeråsa in Sweden. Tångeråsa is located in the countryside and there I have an old farm and some forest. I love the opposites between the city and the countryside, the metropolitan puls and the calmness. I need them both for my temper. In Tångeråsa I do all the rough work like taking down trees, shop it into smaller parts, decide which parts of the tree are interesting, dry the wood properly, processes the objects in different ways andso on. I play around a lot. Back in Stockholm I basically finish the work, I seem to be a bit more concentrated there.."
