Everything new is built on something existing. As a ceramic artist I collaborate with the ones who have been here before me.
Ceramic history is full of mystic figures and faces. I use these as inspiration in the creation of my own figurative abstractions, by which I explore the relations between human beings, nature and spirituality.
Using the technique of sandcasting I enact an art of reverse archeology. The objects, excavated in sand, are not remnants from the past but are created as visions reaching into the future.
Bony creatures, relief images and symbols are like time travelers or artifacts from another world, reflecting the communality of human expressions through time.
