I use used/discarded materials that possess a certain kind of beauty because of their shape.
Not letting this beauty go to waste, I give these materials a new function. My passion mainly lies with industrial and automotive components.
The base materials I use for most of my products/objects, are reused and therefore already served a purpose in a 'previous life'. This means that in most cases there is some visible wear on the material like scratches, rust and dents. This gives the material character and makes every object unique. I do my very best to bring out the best in the used materials and take care of a decent finish. Materials with a rusty surface for example get a coat of clear finish and chrome and aluminium are polished.
A base material for a new upcycled object, always has to have a special shape of it's own. When you consider the shape and interpret it in another way, then the material gets the chance to let go of it's former function. To utilize this shape to serve a new purpose, the material always has to undergo a series of actions. The recognizability however must not go to waste in this process.
