"A strict clear form has its own special beauty. It is not plain but restricts itself to the essentials of being unobtrusive and natural.
Our eyes are overloaded with stimuli everyday. There are very few things in which calmness is inherant that are pleasing to the eye. To create jewellery in which such things are manifest is the main aim of my work" - Carl Dau.
