About the project - Point of view
"The starting point of my works is the wheel which for me refers to something ancient and primal. The monotonous rhythm of clay on the wheel leads to a quiet connection which facilitates growth and being. What motivates me is the continual search and observation. Touching clay, working with it and talking through it, working the surface in the attempt to extend the boundaries of the material. My work combines materials, techniques and inspirations which together express a personal, rich language of color, texture and pattern. My work encompasses many ceramic techniques and materials, experimenting with various firing atmospheres."
