My work combines sculptural objects with functional ware, seeking the fine line between them. Soft, organic and asymmetrical, the forms are inspired by nature – mainly the sea and its creatures – as well as by quotidian functional objects typical of mass consumption culture. The works, made of porcelain paperclay and slip (liquid cast clay), are constructed from handmade slabs and by slip or pressure casting. They are then kiln-fired to a high temperature (cone 7).
