” I’m influenced by the nature and earth because earth is the beginning and the end of everything, all the minerals are on the earth, the same is on the sun too, if there is no sun there is no life, energy, force, warmth. The nature is lightned by the sun and the lightening, the colours that gives on top of creatures.
Time: The corrosion that gives the time. From all these my colours becames. The interest that I have for the earth and sun was the reason that I started to do ceramic. Ceramic is the combination of clay and fire.
To feel the clay with my hands and to shape it, creates me another sense and another think ceramic is resisting to the time. Ceramic is standing from older times to now and to future.
Womens in nature are the symbols of productivity, sex and desire. The sense that gives the softnes, the sexy curls, the lights, the shadows of their bodies.

The influence with the nature of the human bodies, has up on the development period, the corrosion, the worn-out and the pastel colours, texture, simplicity and harmony that gives the broken pieces.”
