The magic of life itself exists within nature… everywhere, it surrounds us and I create from this truth. Even in the stone jungles of our urban lives, it’s possible to touch a piece of nature every morning with the simplicity of a ceramic mug with driftwood handle. That “pleasure ritual” of sipping coffee or tea from this vessel can become your source of inspiration by nature.
My work is a reflection of my philosophy. I cannot and do not strictly control all stages of the work, rather, I work together with the Force of Nature inside me. Through investigating this nature, I am compelled to understand myself and reflect upon my role and purpose of being.
What I enjoy the most about the firing technique is how every piece is exceptional and can never be duplicated. It is always a thrill to open the kiln and see what awaits. This has kept me motivated and excited to continually experiment with the process and materials.
I work primarily with porcelain for its suppleness, delicacy and strength. Porcelains willingness to be transformed, both in form and texture, makes it a perfect medium for exploring how incompatible objects touch and give birth to unique sculptural compositions. Using natural materials such as porcelain, along with wood, crystals and fire… I create sculptural experiences.
My goal is to inspire those who see my ceramics to look more carefully at the nature around, to discover beauty in unusual combinations. I want the viewer experiencing, even if for just a moment, its quietude, tranquility and relationship with nature.
