Clay & me

Relatively new in ceramics I could not have been more in my element. Clay keeps me connected to the earth and her story. Our history is in it, parts of us all are in it. I consider it a magical medium, creating and exploring its endless possibilities is my daily adventure.  And though I have always been involved with art in one way or another I never expected clay and sculpture to develop into such a passion as it is today.

 

In my work I explore themes like the subconscious, our relationship with nature, our experiences and emotions, cultural expectations.  My background in painting helps me make decisions on surface decoration and composition. Inspiration comes from everywhere, Grimm’s fairytales, stories I hear from friends and in the media, art history and most of all working and experimenting every day. My process is very intuitive and, like a storyteller, each piece I create comes with a little story of its own.
