The Secret Garden is a play with bottle gourds and their voluptuous forms.

 

In the course of this process I merge pieces of several gourds into a single new form. I play with open and closed forms, with cavities that have openings or not and with double bottoms.

 

The bottle gourd as material allows me to build voluminous, lavish and at the same time incredibly light forms.

 

The project is a child of its time. Life during Corona means to withdraw from the surroundings like a hermit crab into the protection of one’s burrow. At the same time one longs for nothing more than to open up to the world, to go out, to explore, to socialize.

 

Blessed are those who have their garden.
