Since Jakobs successful solo show in London at Sway Gallery, Jakob has taken time to learn and develop various skills using materials on his land as well as delving into much research on the subjects of psychology, folklore, mythology, spirituality and nature as well as bringing up a young family.

Sashiko Reflections was inspired by his love of natural geometry, Buddhist motifs, protective symbols and cultural history.

Previously to the London Show, Jakob took part in an arts residency in Iceland for List i Ljosi Art Festival of Light in 2017 to build his concept on an ice lake of a ghostly twisted prism mirror foundation of the Viking rainbow bridge to Valhalla in Scandinavian mythology.

In 2013 & 2014 Jakob was invited to exhibit his architectural and geometric series at Clerkenwell Design Week, London within the suitably dark and famouslyhaunted setting of the the House of Detention.


Jakob is currently planning an ambitious series 'The Soul Mirrors', having made contact with professional members within End of Life Studiies, Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy, Optical Physics & History departments of various Scottish Universities towards developing a collaboration of knowledge towards an exhibition.
