What does 'well made' mean to you?
It means something made with professional skill, which, from the outside, may appear easy and simple. It can be an epiphany, a thought-provoking experience, something that asks the question: why?
Where does inspiration come from?
Human beings and the miracle of life never cease to fascinate me. Also, the union between fragile and heavy things, and shapes conveyed by movement. Working with clay is meditative and communicative. It has its own will. We listen to and respect one another.

How do tradition and innovation entwine in your work?
My artistic work is traditional – primitive, meditative, slow. Innovation comes when developing new methods for the artistic processes. My husband and I have created a production model that combines traditional and industrial processes to make objects for our Amfora brand.
What do you love most about making?
The thousands of ideas and ways to create shapes and tell stories. The passion, the way work evolves and surprises. That doesn't mean it’s always pleasurable. Physically and mentally it can be very draining.
