Porcelain is the foundation of my work, combined with wire elements to create a quiet and contemplative charged space. My current artworks evoke childhood memories and repetitive daily activities involving knowledge and contemplation. I commit to the same activity to visualize different parts of myself. I am passionate about duplicating forms using mold making and slip casting technique. This process reveals my fascination with clay replication with subtle variations. Constant permutation is the core of my creative process.
