Why did you choose this craft?
To be able to learn constantly due to the variety of possible decorations with enamels, oxides, engobes; the types of firing; the many techniques, and the different types of clay. I can continue to experiment as my career progresses.
How would you define what you do?
It is a great chance to express myself through porcelain in the form of wall panels and frescoes. Working with ceramics creates a link between the past and present, tradition and modernity. My knowledge of clay and gestures connects me to ceramicists of past centuries; however, my ideas are part of the present.

What are your special skills?
I like that the infinitely small is revealed in large dimensions and the detail of each porcelain is important. I use a light plate technology with LEDs that allows me to backlight the porcelain. The decoration engraved on each piece of porcelain is thus revealed.
What do you like most about your profession?
The transformation of the material and the notion of time. In the workshop, time has another dimension. For the creation process, time is required to dream, observe, think, dare, try, miss, try again, sometimes to create slowly in order to strive for the excellence of what I can express with my partner, porcelain.
