My work may look simple, but if you look beyond the appearance, it is immensely complex. My objects are featured by filigree experiments in porcelain.
The way I use porcelain plays an important role in the originality of my objects. The inspiration finds its origin in the material. This approach creates fresh inroads.
Most objects have a net-like structure, are handmade with strands and dots of porcelain. There is a sense of balance, in structures and colors, with rhythms and contrasts.
All these elements are coming together into the wall, a wall that leads you into the form, a window between inside and outside.
