For me what began as an interest became a passion.
Making pots encompasses all the natural elements of our world.
Earth, water, air and fire. I like that.
Clay is of the earth. This earth is shaped by human hand, aided by water. Then, untouched, time in the air begins its metamorphosis until the final permanent transformation by fire.
At every stage patience is needed. At every stage there are many challenges, which remain the same ones that potters for thousands of years have faced. In this there is no change. This timelessness fascinates me.
I throw my pots in white Stoneware clay.
My aim is to make them functional, and beautiful both within and without.
