I found in clay an organic way to communicate and express my conviction: the purest materials are an honest bridge to the artistic, the artisanal, and also the utilitarian. My main inspiration are animals and textures that nature gives us.

I believe that the legacy of our culture cannot end with one generation of artisans, that contemporary artists and craftsmen have the obligation to learn from them, their techniques, their symbols, to continue writing the history of our identity under our own fresh perspective, but with respect and admiration for the wisdom of our ancestors.
