When I was a kid I enjoyed doing things with my own hands. As I grew up and eventually became an architect, I started designing. But rather than using my hands, my creativity was more often expressed intellectually. I would design a house or some furniture and somebody else would build it. There was something missing…
And then, I started doing handmade ceramics. The cycle was completed! I can now visualize something in my mind and make it, sand it, paint it while experimenting in the process.
Working with clay is an amazing experience. There are so many techniques and shapes to keep my curiosity growing. It keeps me grounded, takes my worries away and makes me feel like a kid again. I enjoy as much the functional pottery as the decorative sculptural pieces I make.
