Statement


Balance and harmony are two crucial parameters well-connected to my work. Regarding the question how I understand when my work is completed, my answer is: when I feel that there is balance and harmony; when all the forms, curves, colours etc… communicate; to sum it up, when I feel a sense of calm and deep peace viewing my work.

I realized my passion for the third dimension when I was in Fine Art and throughout my effort to find my way, I ended in the ceramic field. Clay is an adorable means of expression, pliable enough which allows me to visualize my thoughts and gives form to the shapes locked in my imagination. My inspiration is drawn mostly from organic forms and natural structures.

I love to create flowing curved forms which give the illusion of movement in contrast to the material which are made of. To look like they were alive, full of movement, since someone frozen the moment. My current work consist of wall sculptural pieces because I like seeing how these flowing forms emerge from the flat area of the wall into an extra dimension and stir emotions to the person standing in front of them.
