Birch Bark Works

Paper Jewellery and Paper Sculpture

I can make the rules, but the piece takes the shape of its own. When certain formed components start to follow each other and find their rhythm in my hands, the miracle happens. It is a slow, meditative, and a very natural process. I use printed paper, maps, catalogues, dictionary books. They are rich by their past, carrying along certain places and accidental meanings. This material also gives the pieces their individual exterior and interior decoration – their ornaments. I see wood, stone, bone, feather, fur, field, velvet.

Birch-Bark Paintings

Bark is the skin of birchtree. It has been coating the tree at the mercy of weather, gathering inside itself colours that depend on the direction of sunlight, winds and the climate over time. There is a whole palette of colours inside the layers of bark. The patterns, lines and the merging colours on the bark remind me of the scenery around the birches: morning glows, sunsets, clouds, rain and the reflections mirrored by the lake. Those moments, tattooed in the skin of the birch are the reason and start for these works of mine. I would call them weather maps and landscape paintings.
