Artist's Work


    Work introduction

    during the daytime the  incident light change the character of this throwing vessels forms in Porcelain.
    "My pots are highly articulated interpretations of traditional forms". "Playing" with the technical possibilities of forming and surface treatment is a means to an end: to avoid falling into the trap of permanently repeating what you can do well, the tried and tested, and the familiar. It is pleasure in practical work, making discoveries of what is not yet familiar, trying to master what you cannot yet do, the joy in the adventure of improving your skills.
