Based on experimentation I have developed a body of work of one-offs, functional as well as decorative ceramics. It is an exploration of the boundaries between sculpture and utility, focusing on the object. In today’s world we are surrounded by sort-life products, designed to be thrown away soon so that new ones can be bought. On the other hand art has evolved to a conceptual level where there is no attention paid to aesthetics. My intention is to bring the attention back to the object. A well-designed and made object can curry a story that can be interpreted differently by each viewer. The aim is my work to be communicative. The inspiration derives from nature, ancient pottery, sculpture and human achievements. Ancient Greek art is a major influence as well as Japanese ceramics (tea ceramony) and contemporary artists from the western world. The themes that I’m working on are either echoing my environmental concerns or exploring the human body combined with natural elements (plants, birds, rocks). The products range of functional pieces is platters, plates, bowls, boxes and vases. The decorative work is preoccupied with the exploration of surface qualities, combining diverse techniques, including glazing, screen-printing, drawing and sculpting. I use rough stoneware clay and delicate porcelain, on which is applied digital technology and traditional craft.
