Food &
Story︎︎︎


A dish to your heart?

︎︎︎ The simpler the better, anything but meat pre-oiled and grilled will do. 

And the story behind?

︎︎︎ I think the fire cooking part from the old Armenian gathering/grilling tradition, it reminds me of home, it smells like home and it’s damn easy and quick.

Creativity︎︎︎



List 3 things (online/offline) for a creativity boost.

︎︎︎I don’t spend so much time on the internets actually, so my answer would be:

Nature.
People, that are full of insane energy and are contagious.
And my latest obsession is textiles, natural dying and Shibori.



Tell us 1 of your favourite projects.

︎︎︎Impossible. Ones is my favourite project, it comes from pure lust and nothing I do within Oners is not my 
favourite :)

Inspiration︎︎︎


How do you see the relationship between food and art?

︎︎︎ Food is quintessential, you need food to survive but you can also make it into an amazing and fun experience, just like art, you can just as well drink from a plain ikea cup made by probably slice workers, but it’s not quite the same right?


Where do you find inspirations?

︎︎︎ In the forest, by the sea, on the mountains. I know it’s a cliche but nature has it all figured out, if we just look close enough it has all the answers for us.


How do you want your audiences to respond to your work?

︎︎︎ I want to make people question their everyday goods, where do they come from, who made them, how much they got paid for it. I know I am just making little ceramic things, but I really hope I also can inspire people to invest more in craft, that feeling of knowing someone's hands made the thing you are holding is priceless, at least for me…

Present &
Future︎︎︎


On-going / Upcoming projects?

︎︎︎ A 2.0 version of my mirrors that was recently copied by a big danish furniture brand, booo, a ‘breakfast club’ collection and a bunch of insane clocks.
