Leonida is a red driftwood brooch from the collection Desiderium ad Universum, 2013.Natural metamorphosis enchantes me, like transformation of tree resin into a healing stone. A precious gold-coloured tear of God seeping from the inside of a nature organism. Encloses everything what’s on its way. Insects and worms haven’t found a way out.
Sometimes we see only what we want to see. Sometimes it’s enough, if the things look like how we expect them. They don’t need to be exactly the same. But on the other hand, we want to know the truth behind the things. So we ask and investigate, make research and are curious. We want to find out how things work, we want to change them in our own way. We are creating our own universe. The need to create is an important and elementary necessity of us all.
