Being a physicist for many years, I was always fascinated by how nature constructs something atom by atom or cell by cell. The patterns that lay regularly deep down in matter and living organisms, creating irregular forms and shapes, intrigued my creative being to take control over my scientific self. That is why I decided to leave behind my career as a physicist to adopt a new one as an artist/maker
My work is inspired by the natural world and there are endless sources of inspiration for me hidden in plant and sea forms. Ceramics is the medium I chose because in my opinion clay has a mind and a memory of its own. To work successfully, one has to develop a mutual understanding with it. The method I use, including surface design, ensures that each piece is a separate and individual work. I like to work with coloured clays as it supports me to play with different patterns and practices.
