In the past the knowledge of metal transformation was mysterious and guarded. I was so overwhelmed that I established the contact with a master blacksmith and was apprenticed to him. Later I fixed up my own workshop and started to develop my own style which originates from the rich tradition of central Europe. I live in Slovenia where there is an ever-present and strong influence of the neighbouring Italy and the entire Mediterranean. Iron-forging is an old craft of tool-making and arms-making that has been present for thousands of years. After the Middle Ages iron-forging evolved into artistic iron-forging and it made furniture pleasant to the eye. I wish to preserve this tradition which is slowly dying out, and would like to place it into a modern setting.
