We can meet with natural keynotes in themes of his work often transformed to abstract forms.

The author´s range of interest is filled with ceramic or porcelain objects having functiona lity such as light objects, clocks, vases, bowls etc. These artefacts are typical for constricted shapes and modest decoration reflecting simple design. A part of his works is made by combinating or putting in variety of different materials to ceramics such as metal, glass or wood.
