“There is a tremendous potential in raw materials and natural resources. Clay as a primordial raw material is a powerful and expressive medium. As an artist, I am on a journey to explore and understand the natural properties of clay and the firing process. My palette is limited, shades of white and gray, blacks, natural pigments and metallic oxides.
As I create art, I move effortlessly into a familiar existence. My work is a kind of composition process, moving pieces around, in which various elements look for their own places and their dynamics. My intention is also to reduce or eliminate factors and so to express the essential.”
