The inspiration for his work comes from the amazing art left behind to us from the Viking age. These Scandinavian peoples from the early Middle Ages spread across the developed world as traders and raiders and also developed a flourishing artistic style, which survives in wood carvings and metal jewellery. These pieces are the origins of his own original work. Taking the design from historical pieces, he develops them into jewellery for the 21st Century, giving people a link back to an ancient craft. He keeps the living art of the Viking tradition alive.
