I usually process the wood from trees that have grown here in the Münsterland. With most of the objects I still know exactly where the tree stood, shaped its environment for decades or even centuries and was in turn shaped by it. This close connection to nature and to my homeland pleases me every time I step in my woodshop.

When working with wood, it is particularly important to me to bring contrasts into harmony. This can be the change from finely sanded to coarsely textured surfaces in the wood or the change from one material to another. I often use brass, which combines beautifully with oak. The contrast between fired and unfired surfaces is particularly exciting for me.
