“When working on my vessels, form is always essential for me. I love throwing on the potter's wheel as much as hand-building, even thought my approach to each technique is different. When I hand-build I start with a plan, which does not include an exact image of finished work. The form emerges only through the process of work and dialogue with clay. When working on the wheel I want a comprehensive, but simple form. Each part of the process is adventure, but mixing glazes from local materials is especially exciting. So many possibilities… I believe that all vessels need a blessing of serendipity, that is why I choose porcelain and also happily give the last word to nature. In the wood kiln 1280°C -1350°C (2336F-2455F), the vessel can truly prove its right to be. Simultaneously it develops character, strength and energy."
