What do you love most in your work?
In ceramics I find all the things I love in life: the combination of mental and physical work, research and experimentation, visual and tactile experiences. I enjoy the process of construction, changing forms, listening to the material, watching my thoughts.
When did you start working as a ceramicist?
I’d say my work started when I found a studio and bought a pottery kiln. It was December 2015. I remember I carried out my first firing on New Year’s Eve. It was so exciting: new year, new life!
What inspires you?
I am an observer by nature, I like to notice the little things. Sometimes it’s a landscape or a combination of colours, sometimes it’s an unusual shadow or my emotions. Lately I’ve been drawn to abstract art – that inspires me too.
Why do you think ceramics are so popular these days?
It’s not just ceramics, it’s crafts in general. Perhaps people are tired of consumption. With progress came the need for grounding. The use of natural materials and ideas of sustainable consumption made people appreciate the uniqueness of things again.
