Artist  Statement

I began studying pottery  in 2003 and my first wish was to create functional wares. I was inspired by Japanese ceramic art and I tried to express the processes of nature in clay. Issues that interested  me  were the transience of life, imperfection, impermanence , nature of the self, and the beauty of materials. But my philosophy transformed, and I began to reflect on human beings and about processes in society: Civilization and urbanity  as capable of changing human nature; Personality as a set of separate elements and how they may be changed and permanently transformed; Continuous change and imperfection as a base line of personality making any seeming order unstable; Entropy as a mode of transforming the objects of material culture; and psychological isolation as common to human experience.  I try to integrate these ideas as motifs into my work. In the midst of my sculptural work I continue to make pottery because for me it is the study of form, surface, color, science, and technology. It remains a great experience to have the possibility to make functional things.
