Welcome to my site! I work as an eco-designer, an artist, as a teacher and as a researcher, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

Finally the weather is warm enough for me to work outside, oxidizing copper and brass. Hopefully this will turn out as cool in real-life as in my head. You never know, because it´s impossible to control the process.

Working on several pieces at the same time. Above is fine metal mesh, and below, solid metal.

Here is the beginning of the process. (Hm, I need to get some summer-flowers in my pots)

The magic combination of metal, chemicals, air, water,and time…

First part of process is done, now they´re drying in my bathtub. The time-part of the equation is the one working for me now.

After a couple of days lying out in the rain, the olives and turquoises are starting to appear.

Stayed tuned. Tomorrow I´ll show you the final result!
