His Goldsmiths jewellers process is more sculptural than a design process. After drawing he try to put together some elements that came out of the drawing and give them a function to decide if it will be for use or not.

He use pure geometrical forms and the solid but empty form gives a massive appearance to the pieces, and a great lightness when taken in use.
