“With my ceramic work I hope to bridge modern design and the natural world by paring down the essence of things to repetitive texture and basic form. I love the way a texture can produce the illusion of movement, the way light and shadow play with one another. I like to keep the work simple, as I strive to make it captivating yet universally understood. Understated and elegant, it should be able to fit in many different contexts.
I work mostly with porcelain, as touch also plays a major role in my work. The feel of the clay is something I will never be able to get away from. The texture is buttery smooth, the color a brilliant white and the working properties challenging.
Focusing on a very limited, almost all white color palette enables me to focus more on texture and surface and calls attention to the brilliance of the clay. I am constantly searching for new hints of inspiration on walks through the woods, beach adventures and through macro photography. The natural world holds a wealth of imagery from which I filter into this work.”
