« Like a sculptor I am searching for a way to translate my thoughts and observations into material. I make material sketches and collages, apply or remove material and try to bring forth something that touches the soul. Breaking the rules and limits of the familiar I develop my own techniques and tools to generate a new aesthetic. The explorative approach of technique and material activates in my process a never-ending experimental field of discoveries and innovations.
Since my graduation project I work mainly with stainless steel and fine welding. Rather than trying to disguise the welding dots, they have become a central element of my jewellery making. » Esther Heite
