After concentrating 100% on the creating sculptures, a process has started in which the expression evolves in the sculptures.

An exciting journey has begun where the sculptures are taking different shapes and consequently different expressions. I challenge the form of the stone sculpture, its entirety has to be expressed consistently all around the sculpture. The hard stone material acquires expressions from organic, harmonic, female, to more challenging provocatively sharp, complex and even slanting forms and shapes.
