The cycle COATED FORMS began in 1989. The wooden cores are wrapped in metal straps that are nailed to the wooden core and form a metal shell, thus preserving the soft wooden core from decaying, or at least slowing the process down. The wooden core is shaped or minimally reshaped. The final act is the patination of the surface with blue vitriol, or simply letting the metal oxidize which enriches the sculpture and gives it an impression of being ancient. Depending on the shape of the wooden core, the sculptures are divided into soft and hard form - the soft ones are organic and the hard ones are geometrically shaped. Some forms are associated with ethnography, the objects of rural households (bread, trunk, box, stump).
