What is your creative approach?
When I’m invited to work on a specific task, I work purposefully. I sit down and think, decide what to do and then create it. If the occasion is self-initiated and free of restraints, I start with how I want to materialise the idea.
Which are your favourite materials?
Clay, porcelain, paper and wax. They are the reason to experiment. I like to combine them or to change their primal nature to express my own ideas. I love simple forms, especially when it comes to function. I work with laconic colours: various shades of white, grey, black, tiled red, and deep blue.

What constitutes a good idea?
I'm never sure that an idea is good until I see the end result. This arises from many trials. When I test a new approach and it ends well, I'm inspired to use it for my new work. I was so pleased by the result of my latest project 5/5 Water, I created a collection.
How do you connect with your work?
Experimenting with materials is a form of rest and therapy. I enjoy the moments of solitude, in full concentration when I create. I look forward to establishing a solo studio where i can have the quiet time to reflect on and imagine my next projects.
