'My work is an ongoing exploration of the various possibilities of reducing the meaning of an object to its essence. My ceramics pretends to go beyond the object obvious significance and looks for absolute simplicity in form. I guess my background as a product designer is always present in my artistic journey as function plays a major role in my ceramics.


I would describe my practice as research led, which means that my work is a combination of research in functional aesthetic principles and sculptural aesthetic criteria. This way of working requires a continuous movement between the tangible and the intangible, geometry and unpredictability, balance and movement, rationality and chaos. My ceramics endeavours to catch echoes of all this whilst trying to embrace the unplanned and the unexpected uniqueness of working with clay.’
