Yesterday I had a wonderful day out visiting Broomhill Sculpture Gardens and meeting Rinus and his delightful team at Broomhill Art Hotel. Rinus made some time and showed me around his stunning sculpture gardens and we found a space where […]
A view of my hell kitchen, where life is infused into a future goddess. The work is intense, but I’m happy how the piece for the Broomhill National Sculpture Prize is coming along. Adding material and filing back to find […]
Ahhh! I waited a long time for this moment. Against all odds, the sculpture did fit into my car!! And it fits into my studio. Just about! Just enough space to put my hand between the top part of the […]
After discussing the shape of the metal structure and its fixture to the stand on Wednesday, I returned on Friday, 24th April, to Honeyring LTd – CNC Polystyrene. We inserted the metal structure into the Polystyrene form and Nick and […]

A huge thank you to Nick and Jeff from CNC Polystyrene, part of Honeyring Ltd., who have kindly agreed to sponsor my piece by helping me with the 3d scan of the model and cutting it on their huge CNC […]
The drawing stage is followed by the model making. Loads. This stage helps to solve formal issues and to understand the technical challenges. It’s easier to solve these on a small scale !
Hello, I’m back. I had to concentrate on another project last week, but which does not mean that the Broomhill project remained idle. A lot of things happened. So lets start from the beginning as I promised to illustrate the […]
About Finding objects Or do objects find us? I am interested in making visible what I sense to be present behind the surface appearance of things, by going past the obvious. Influenced by my upbringing on a farm in Germany […]
A blog giving an inside in the making of a large piece for the Broomhill Sculpture Garden. About finding objects, drawing, model making, material, trials and errors, and hopefully many happy accidents.
