Physical description [en]

A series of various species of stink or shield bugs in the form of crossbody bags.

Abstract [en]

The creative journey is neither linear nor uniform; it’s a mix of experiences, methods, techniques, and choices that blend together seamlessly. This series is a reflection of this evolutionary process. It is not about the destination—the finished piece—but about the narrative that unfolds along the way. It’s about the choices made, the influences assimilated, and the unforeseen paths that emerge. The different designs of beetles unfolds the story of a creative process evolving. My work embraces the fluidity between design, art and craft, navigating a realm where traditional boundaries are redefined.

The series, featuring various species of stink or shield bugs, is carefully crafted from vegetable-tanned leather, with an aim of capturing the beauty of insects amidst our changing world. It also reflects a deeper issue, mirroring the quiet vanishing of insect populations globally.

In this series I explore the boundaries between art, design, and craft, as well as blending digital and traditional tools in the making of small crossbody bags, a practical item with a touch of humor.
