Artist statement

In my work I combine chamotte clay and porcelain. I love the contrast of the strong preserving character of clay
with the delicateness of the porcelain. My shapes are clean and the surfaces are flat. On them, I write messages,
draw pictures or insert different elements. Lithophany, the most demanding technique I make, is an image made
from a thin panel of porcelain biscuit, executed in a shallow embossed relief. The motif displayed is only revealed
through backlighting. I also build large format sculptures fired in a traditional manner. The initial interest for big
scale work emerged during my residency in China and visiting the famous Terracotta Army in the mausoleum of
the first Chinese emperor.”
