”I like to think that objects are more than just material. At best, they relay emotions and tell stories of a life lived. In my experience, objects connect us to other people and history, allowing us to interact with others. That’s why their existence is so important to us.

I am interested in quiet everyday objects, and I want my handmade ceramics to communicate the same feeling of slowness and silence I experience when working with material. What’s more, I pay attention to the tactile perception of objects, so I aim to create each item with the utmost care and piety. I am extremely meticulous through the entire process, from pouring to adding the finishing touches.”
