The idea behind my style in ceramics originates from the organic properties of clay. I like to work with innate traits of the medium, allowing the natural colour and texture of clay to come through in my work. My idea is to embrace the uniqueness of every piece that I make, to allow it to have its own differences from all the others. This individuality is found only in handcrafted pottery and is becoming rare in a world flooded with serially manufactured functional pieces.
Fearlessly, I like to experiment with shape and form, and through this experimentation discover new shapes that look outside of the conventional way of pottery, while also adhering to high standards of craftsmanship that have been passed on for centuries.
Thank you for the visit!
