My objects sometimes take hundreds of hours to create due to fact that I use hand tools only. No machinery takes part in the process, every stitch is done by hand and there are thousands of it in every project.

With a background of having studied Biology I find my inspiration in nature where I have fallen in love with organic shapes and structures.

The character design consists of my leather work combined with bodypainting, costume, props, basically whatever tells the story.

I Hope you will enjoy it!

The teeth shine in brass and copper, so does the magnificent lantern. Hopefully,... Read More

The Crying Heart

Flowers have always been fascinating and an inspiration for me (and as some of you know: back in the days I studied floral ecology in the Uni). Flowers and organic shapes have typically been featured in Art Nouveau pieces to bring back the "nature" in big cities. Now this is my tribute: The Floral desk lamp in Art Nouveau style, inspired by "Lamprocapnos spectabilis".

Okay man, You GOTTA call Tim Burton, or Johnny Depp. If Burton doesn't like it call Steven Speilberg. But, I think Tim Burton is the best choice.
