“Early in my art studies, I recall standing before hundreds of flames spitting out from an imperfectly built brick crust in which my large sculpture was fired, and felt a deep connection with the ceramic material being born. Controlling the power of fire and developing an ability to transform material has fascinated me ever since. From that moment my profession and goals were established for good. From this early “alchemist” phase also came my interest in innovation, leading me to design acoustic covers, furniture, and other objects; the focal point of my interest was to find the strange connection between space and object, voice and form, light and touch. I know now that I am looking for a balance and connection in the complexity of the dependencies between various media.”
