I am fascinated by the varied expressions that can be obtained through ceramic surfaces. A glaze can shrink, crackle, bubble, flow, lie flat. A glaze can also give me associations to a shape, which evoke thoughts of an encounter with another surface and shape. An association game that guides me forward in the process.
In my artistic practice, I explore the materials of clay, glaze and glass, and draw associations between the different materials.
The encounter between the controllable and the uncontrollable recurs in both expression and method. My design language consists partly of austere, graphic and architectural objects, carefully planned and constructed. And partly of melting shapes and pools in which coloured clay, crushed glass, or glaze creates patterns and shapes beyond my control. In my degree project, I have examined both of these sides to find a dynamic in the encounter between them.
