have always been inspired by the Ancient Egyptians.
Over many years a mysterious and overwhelming attraction
drew me back, again and again, to the still, static
figures of the Ancient Egyptian statues, to the hieroglyphics
and the wall paintings.
Even as a young artist, my future was bound up in the
past, the cradle of civilization. There, in the ancient
tombs of Egypt, ! found my inspiration and ideal, which
I am constantly striving to attain and to perfect.
There are few artists today who can attain the extraordinary
artistic and technical skills of those ancient geniuses.
As ever I still passionately admire the simplicity and
perfection of their Art.
Two years ago a totally new development of ideas started
to surface in my work, in which the main emphasis was
on simplicity of form and clarity of line.
Thus was born my new collection of 22 carat Gold sculptured
Vessels inspired by the unique shapes of ancient ceremonial
flasks and ritual vessels.
I dedicate the collection as a homage and tribute to
the anonymous, highly skilled artists of the ancient
eras. Each vessel bears the imprint of my personal seal
and so, at last, I close the circle."
