ABOUT

 

 

 

Inside of me there are always a fearless kid who loves to play and explore and a scientist who is deeply interested in materials and their interaction. I started my way as a self-taught ceramic artist, exploring all the possible ways of working with clay and improving my skills as a potter and designer. Sooner came the interest in the scientific aspect of the material and I started looking into material science and chemistry of clays and glazes. I always loved to combine ceramics with other media like wood, metal, stone etc. and balance on the edge between my artistic and scientific practice.

 

 

 

In 2022 I finished a Master degree in Ceramics and Glass, Art and Science and now I see my artistic process as a part of life with its stages of birth, growth, flowering and death. I see materials as a self-exploration tool for an artist and a very powerful tool to transform oneself and the viewer. Today alongside my ceramic practice I create video art, installations and performances by mixing various media to embody my artistic universe.
