how and where I find my materials
These tree trunks I found in an old graveyard in Neukölln and I hollowed out the innards to leave beautiful trunks to use as table legs. I look at each piece of wood to see what it tells me – I have many ideas which come to me when I’m working with the wood rather than having an end goal from the offset.
I look for materials across the city. I use the strips of wood from pallets to create table tops, old furniture that I reconfigure and sometimes I go to wood yards to pick up interesting piece of wood. Sometimes the wood found on pallets have lovely markings, such as company stamps, that make the table an individual piece. I also find wood from blown down or diseased trees.
