World economics and my hammer

In the middle of a worldwide economic crisis some might say that it is absolutely not the right time to open a new shop presenting luxury goods. Oh well, I'll be happily naive and go ahead anyway, because I actually believe it is a perfect time.
A wise colleague of mine often say that 'There is always a need for skilled people'. I keep playing that mantra on my internal player while I keep calm and believe that it's the right thing to do. 

I am a craftsman and designer and therefore I can create objects with my hands and I posses the skills of innovation and creativity much valued for the future of f.ex. the Danish production industry. 

I can take a piece of material, use my hammer on it and create some value or I can draw a design on my computer, 3d print it, make it a prototype and thereby take the first step towards a larger production.
I know that it's a drop in the ocean and that I sound a bit like some famous egg-selling lady, but I just love that my metier is so simple that I, by combining new technologies with traditional manufacturing techniques, creativity and good old craftsmanship, can create something valuable out of a piece of raw material.

New shop...Well, almost new.

I'm very happy to announce that in very short time I'll be back in my good old neighborhood in the centre of Copenhagen, as a matter of fact I'll be back in my old shop at Møntergade 14.
I have had a hectic two year period full of changes both in my private and in my professional life, and I have become aware of how important it is to have a cosy nest in order to develop new work and be visible to the people who need it.
After a long period of 'househunting' for a new platform for my business, I was lucky that Møntergade 14 was available for rent. Now I'm looking forward to open my very own shop, workshop and design studio, offering private and companies good design, desirable objects and various 3d-services.
I can't wait to see you there.
