Panels are a body of work that evolved directly out of my practice as a furniture-maker. Often there is much waste associated with creating the utilitarian object. I in turn use this material that came into the world to fulfill a function to create a functionless object.  I am fascinated by creating pieces that posses only an aesthetic value by utilizing techniques and materials that were intended to fulfill a utilitarian one. 

Are aesthetics utilitarian? The conversation becomes more interesting when the material and process of the functionless object in turn becomes an inspiration for a piece of furniture. Therefore a loop is formed and it becomes difficult to distinguish where the process begins. – Stefan Rurak
