Artist Statement



 

Clay is a magnificent medium to work with. It constantly challenges my creativity, knowledge, and skills. It pushes my boundaries and makes me go forward, makes me want to discover and experience more and more.

Life is a constant change and my artwork represents this change. I love the fact that clay allows me to create art that possesses dynamic, motion, and direction. With every piece I am trying to create a movement. There is a surprise at every angle and no side is the same.

In my work I like to implement nature by using leaves, flower-like elements, and clean organic forms. I would like my art pieces to carry a strong reminder how important and relevant nature is and how dependent we are on it. 

Creating my pieces I use both wheel throwing and handbuilding techniques. I work with porcelain and mid-fire stoneware.
