“Through my work, I aim to challenge the modern consumer-based perception
of beauty. Rather than trying to follow or create trends, I choose instead
to focus on finding value in aspects of the world that are often
overlooked – lost objects, elements of nature, and personal histories.
Incorporating elements that have already seen a life, I design a finished
product that tells a unique story, creating heritage pieces. I
persistently challenge myself through immersion in new environments and
cultures. Shifting the frame of reference through which I experience the
world around me allows for a constant evolution of my perception of
beauty, continually expanding the scope of my work.” – Himo Martin
