My work is focused on functional wares and I use the throwing wheel as my major tool to produce them.
I enjoy the quality of the clay, which is genuine and shows the spirit of the maker. And the making process itself stimulates my creative thinking and also arouses my curiosity to investigate and explore my own sense of beauty. My aim is to find a balance among all these elements: volume, shape, proportion, form and be able to give its own sense of presence and stability. And the lines on them play emphasizing the sense of volume (generosity) and creating notion of proportion in them.
My intentions are clear that I want to make pots to be used ether for an ordinary or for some special occasions. What I am interested about is the human communication and relationship that it generates due to the accessibility and the intimate quality that the pots hold.
