Being a potter, an artist, a traveler is a way of life. The power, beauty and fragility of nature have always inspired me. It has taught to be respectful. There is something very similar in nature and ceramics - you have to be able to listen, obey - it is not wise to “conquer”. Just as in the high mountains you have to treat everything around with reverence, so it is with the clay. They will both tell you how to behave and what to do. You only need to be able to listen. But at the same time - touching borders, breaking myths, the desire to create something that seems impossible is part of this world. In my recent works, I have given porcelain and glass the opportunity to do their magic. Form my side conditions and patience. Glass and porcelain work wonderfully to create unique and fragile forms - just like nature. The key words are the fragility of nature and life.
