“People love to be in a creative, visually stimulating environment, and these days it seems that we’ve been inundated with mass-produced products to feed this desire.
At Relik, I believe that each sculptural piece should have integrity, be made with care by hand and add value to people’s lives.
Ultimately, the handmade, tactile nature of the Relik pieces gives them a point of difference in the current market. So it’s an exciting time for sculptural artists.
Modern technology has allowed us to experiment with new materials and techniques. I like to work with quite crude materials such as silicone, polymers, concrete, sand and paint.
I also like that my pieces can stand on their own as sculptures and decorative objects or be utilized to hold water, soil and plants.
They can be used for many different purposes, but they are considered art because they are unique and aesthetic, with a clear concept behind their creation.”
