I have experimented with different materials and various firing techniques, both at low and high temperature. My interest is focussed on high temperature and porcelain processing techniques; porcelain is the clay I use for sculpture, decorative objects and jewellery. I mostly glaze only parts with crystalline or dry glazes, in order to get strong contrasts. I like my Contemporary Art Jewellery black or white, decorated with ceramic transfers. Although porcelain remains my favourite material, in recent years I have become passionate about resins, brass and electroforming, which I love to integrate into porcelain creations.
