I have worked as a professional artist and ceramist since 1991, exploring the properties of many different materials, including metal, paper, fibre, plastic, paint and clay. In ceramics I have specialised in high-fired translucent carved porcelain and reduction-fired celadon glazes. My work is mostly functional, as it enriches day-to-day life, bringing art and design, imagination and inspiration into otherwise ordinary moments. I do not believe in being different for difference´s sake; instead I have respect for tradition, without being bound to it. The most important theme in my work, and my constant inspiration, is the ever-changing sea, which has always fascinated me - not just the creatures in it, but also the interplay of light and water. From the ordered chaos of white horses on a choppy sea to the synergy of a school of anchovies, there seems to be enough inspiration in and around the sea and its shores to last many lifetimes.

My current location in a small town at the foot of a great mountain has led to the introduction of new terrestrial themes. Recent works explore some of the possibilities of abstract design: combining randomness with structure, examining the relationship between sharp and blurry lines, and the interplay between colour and pattern in oxide painted earthenware and high fired blue and white porcelain.
