About me

My first encounter with porcelain, as matter and means of expression took place when I was at college. Its lyric poetry touched me… In my works of porcelain, functionality and plasticity have become separate. I have always been interested in the transformation of consumer goods and the metamorphosis of things dictated by changing fashions of different ages. I could compare the process of creating porcelain objects to the writing of a sonnet, controlled by strict rules and discipline.

Design

Probably I have worked so much with this material that I am able to dream with it…It often happens that the designs appear in front of me like ready visions given to me, although it is rather a gift during the past few years, since I feel this material as much as I understand it. In this case all I have to do is to “merely” represent the image in the material. It would be good if there was an internal camera in order to preserve the images. This is a long-standing dilemma of the creators: thoughts are taking flight, while the material lags far behind...
