Having worked as an architect for many years, it was very natural to feel the attraction to pottery as a way of expression, as I could use three-dimensional shapes in a much more free and organic way.
Each one of my pieces is an adventure; I generally don’t have a clear plan before I start, and I let my hands and the clay decide what to do. Gradually my aesthetic sense comes to play to improve and to refine the piece. The rest of the work is patience, and more patience…
Inspired by Majolica art, I like to use ceramic shapes as a blank canvas in which I can explore my love for drawing and colors. I also have been creating high-fired sculptural bowls and vases, and while high firing doesn’t allow me to splurge in the use of colors, it allows me to explore shapes that please my eye in a more substantial way.
