"My porcelain work aims to create a hybrid between functional art and conceptual sculpture, and to challenge what we know about this delicate and noble clay.
I regard it as the wild horse of all materials. It took a long time for us to get to know each other. I realized I had no need to train or make this noble material surrender to my rule. instead I had to bring it to a state through which it could evolve into a piece that expresses my feelings. I try to express throw it, my being, the colors and the movements that are within me when I am working."
