Ceramic objects give interior design finishing touches, often bringing the space to perfection.
Ceramic requires multidimensional thinking and imagination, only after that comes refined tech-nique. As a result of these features we come across objects that stay in our heart.
The mood of the artist is crucial during the work. The attitude as the person’s subconscious gets reflected on the character of the object, its color and its story.
Working is a private process for me, I have to be alone with the object. The form always dictates the drawing.
I am growing together with the White Studio. My full energy and inner freedom is reflected on my works.
Only creative freedom empowers me to experiment, that results in such vast diversity of objects created.
Molding and working with clay is a mystic process for me. You engage with the material during the work in some sort of a dialogue. The finished object continues life of its own.
Creative process is complicated and interesting at the same time. Each new piece of work is a new experience.
I love White Studio, here i express my emotions through art.
Ceramics is my world, to which I lose myself and then find again.
Ceramics fills me with energy and gives me endless opportunities to experiment.
God took clay and made human , i take clay and make human happy.
White Studio’s ceramic oven warms me up differently.
Clay is endless by itself…an inseparable part of my life
Relationship you have with clay is very similar to marital relationships.
Clay to me is both - love and hobby. What fascinates me is that a handful of land turns into a piece of art.
The secret of firing clay is in awakening the object, bringing it to life.
I found myself in Ceramics
Working at White Studio made me realize that beauty is addictive.
