Statement

In my work, the power of the handmade and its unlimited possibility for experimentation becomes something relevant and extremely important. Clay is the perfect material for this. My thought, through touch, is immortalized by fire.

I believe the act of creation touches the core of our being and speaks to us directly and personally. The process from fragments and memories in our mind, to our fingers and straight to the person who for the first time sees it complete, listens to it, touches it, and finally holds the link of our collective soul by wearing it.
