As a sculptor, I use clay to bring to life the complex and ephemeral emotions that exist within us. My work is influenced by the beauty and diversity found in nature and the human body, and I aim to express this through abstract and contemporary forms that balance fluidity with structure. The resulting sculptures, which I refer to as “Modern Day Relics”, capture the primitive elegance and raw vitality of the human experience.
Clay, with its unique personality and characteristics, is an integral part of my creative process. I approach this material with reverence and devotion, fostering a symbiotic relationship as I work. Clay absorbs and holds onto the stories I tell, allowing me to express certain narratives with ease and understanding. To me, clay is the flesh of the earth, and each piece I create reflects the deep connection I have with this elemental material and my wish to share that connection with the world.
