In a time of huge unrest, I wanted to explore if a hard metal object could fill an observer with tenderness and inspire to peace. The utmost and longterm, although perhaps pretentious and unachievable, goal is to learn to craft pieces that can soften the shielded hearts of the power holders in the violent country that I live in. It is something that I will have to continue working on.
