“Ceramic is a tactical, sensorial, therapeutic medium that I express my nature and my moods. I AM attracted to the versatility and to the endless possibilities of this medium.
I immerse myself in Hand building each piece, losing track of time.
At the moment I am drawn to using the traditional Japanese technique, Raku, and the Chinese technique, Saggar. Both these techniques create unique organic outcomes. I am inspired by the firing ritual and the beauty it produces.”
