I'm searching for peace. Circular centering of simplicity unites blend of colors into white. In my work on the wheel, I use the power of turning to shape minimalist, plain, organic forms that are built at the moment. The changes apply to me are embodied in the differences between object and object. It intrigues me to explore the tension and balance of the incessant movement, embedded in the matter, completes itself through our eyes in the ended piece, contrary to the fragility and rigidity in which.

I perceive the space as an integral part of the making and the relationship between it and the object as illuminating concealed perspectives. Time and place design every old concept as new while I learn and grow from each move. In any step of the path I chose, I resume my way from the start.
