“Vases in the shape of the female figure are my favourite. I usually begin with wheel-thrown pieces. After putting the pieces together, altering and making each one look like a figure, I then have the surface of the vessel to cover with reliefs, hand painted pictures and patterns. Seeking an expressive and new silhouette in each vase, along with its decoration – that’s what makes each piece unique and important for me.”
