I dove back into clay at the University of Regina in 2018 after a twenty-year break. In 1998 I completed a formal five-year education in a ceramic art school in Germany (Keramikfachschule Landshut) with a Master-Craftsmanship-Diploma.

When asked why ceramics, the first that comes to my mind is “It is the alchemy that gives me a never ending fascination.” Ceramics is the most complex material in the art world, in my opinion: The process of bringing together the elements of earth, fire, and water to “create.”

I like to work with the wheel. Thrown forms give an excellent starting point in my process. Always on the hunt for the perfect form — vessels are my favorite — as they define a space in a literal and metaphorical way.
