As a ceramic artist, I am interested in exploring micro and macro nature perspectives and inviting the viewer on a journey of sensorial discovery through sculptural forms. The micro exploration of nature’s organic elements is expressed in the details of the forms, I am often inclined to use clay, slips and glazes to evoke other materials, sensations of different degrees of temperature and hardness, as well as experimenting with scale, profile and volume. The macro perspective inspired by natural sites is particularly interesting to me while looking at the relation between multiples, space between objects, and the dynamics that happen when you group two objects or a multitude of them. There is an instant dialogue that forms between pieces inviting the viewer to notice how they alter the space around them. Exploring variations of each concept and developing it to its full potential results in a sensorial journey rich in nuances, playful and dynamic.
“I knew that looking at them, if you are careful you can hear them, you can feel them move, and to me that is success. They are not static objects, they are heteromorphic.”
