Color Designer in Architecture
Contemporary Geometric Beadwork Team
Zurich, Switzerland
As an artist I'm especially interested in color, form and the interaction of the two.
In my profession as a Color Designer in Architecture I'm working in a big scale. To work with the tiny little glass beads offers a completely different dimension.
To be part of the international beadwork project 'Contemporary Geometric Beadwork', is a great honor and opened a new world.

In my artwork I have the combination of brain, heart and hand which is very important for me.

The Kaledocycle, a glass and thread version of a Bricard Linkage, was popularized by mathematician Doris Schattschneider and graphic artist Wallace Walker in the 1970s, when they converted tesselations by M.C. Escher into origami turning toys based on Raoul Bricard's chain of tetrahedra.
