I am active in the field of visual arts, specializing in ceramic sculpture. In my works that can be classified as organic geometry, I enter into a dialogue with space. In numerous projects, the geometry of the shell fragments, in contrast to the expression of the structure, creates tensions that build the organic form, which is a record of memory and emotions. On this basis, my works have also been classified as a discursive abstraction. I build a dialogue between the form and its materiality, and the space that opens up in it, reflecting the emptiness and transcendence that can only exist in contrast to what is physical in them. An important element for me is creative freedom, which I achieve thorough knowledge of the workshop, which translates into a conscious and self-limiting use of the artistic means applied in individual projects.
