“Today almost anything can be done using a computer. Previously craftsmanship was the key. I like returning to craftsmanship. I want to create things that are contemporary and timeless at the same time.”
Ole recently started to make wooden toys, the first – a big yellow seaplane for his grandchild – later several different airplanes, cars and a few boats. Ole has once again showed that he is a true master of simplicity, transforming his simple pictogram design skills unto the physical world of wooden toys.
