Process

My practice involves creating sculptures with the coiling method. I choose to display the coil to unearth the process, which is often concealed in most of the ceramic pieces sculpted with this method. I celebrate this process and the history of ceramics and artefacts. I find inspiration in early primitive clay forms from the Japanese ‘Jōmon’ period, and my creative strategy is inspired by the Bauhaus.
