influence of Friedrich Froebel
Froebel's blocks were the first big source of inspiration for my wooden sculptures.
I wanted to make blocks for adults, something to play with: to hold and arrange, something smoothing, lucrative and fun.
Well, the result doesn't quite look like blocks but wooden pastries and cakes.
