This sculpture arose from the inspiration I get from looking at trees, (house) plants and their leaves. Both the details and the overall experience that flora can give me play a role in this work. The way a tree shaft rises firmly and well-founded from the earth, how leaves emerge and roll out, as well as the simple natural perfection of a tree, have been the breeding ground for the creation of this work. The titel Ortus literally means emergence, in this case the emergence of a freely interpretable floral form.
