Process & Production

I have a special passion for porcelain, and I am fascinated by the fragility and beauty that lies within this material. I have worked with porcelain-slip casting in plaster molds for nearly thirty years. The molds are originally handmade, created through my entire art production over a 20–30-year period. I have created small porcelain objects based entirely on these molds. Making sculptures in porcelain, using traditional crafting techniques is a slow process that requires patience and caution, as the material is very fragile and easily breaks into pieces.
