In my practice, I am interested in how I can express sensual feminine qualities using the material of clay.
I work on vessels and pots, traditional containers that I reinterpret by using repetitive and ornamental
surface treatments. Texture and the feeling it provokes for the viewer are integral to my sculptures which
aim to create emotions that fluctuate between fascination and repulsion. These vessels find their
inspiration in organic patterns, in the history of ornament, and the social history of craft. A personal tale
is told through a surrealist assembling of objects.
