first lines

What I like to focus on and bring to this blog is expressed in a short text as part of the de/sign/ed catalogue from 2005, it reads:

As much as the mind links an idea with a design solution, the hand connects design to the making process. Making becomes the extension of design and forms the essence of craft.

New technologies play an ever increasing part in my working practice. The skillful manipulation of tools and process’ – the basis of making – is equally important for digital work and require an experienced hand. This augments and expands all aspects from sketching to the making, digital technologies have a hand in it. Using the old together with the new calls for new design solutions and informs the resulting objects. Traditional silversmithing techniques interact with rapid prototyping parts and the virtual 3D space of the CAD program feels like an extension to my workshop.

The pleasure is in the making wherever and however it happens.

    I couldn’t agree more. I think with as fast as technology moves and advances we can’t help but get inspired by it and grow from it. As a painter, I look at all the programs you can now do on your computer. I have to learn new techniques that don’t include paint and a brush. It has now turned into using a mouse and a computer screen. I was very closed minded to this at first but after trying it and seeing examples of how others use these programs , I am more inspired than scared to apply them.
