I entered into the world of ceramics after completing a degree in the sciences and working in the media.

 For me, clay serves as an intermediary between inner and outer reality.

The routine of daily life occupies me and drives my creative instincts. Boundaries and identity, time, routine, the struggles against it, the rituals underpinning it and the desire to disrupt them. It is the imperfect that fascinates me. I am interested in cracks, in severing materials from their usual context and rejoining them in new ones – ambivalent situations.

Repetition characterizes my creative process and most of my works. I am curious about small pieces joining together in a single construct, similar to cells creating tissue. Possibilities of joining together are infinite, each piece and its place in the construct are significant.
