Body of Work | 2017

I'm trying to express femininity. Its beauty, softness, and power. The ring surrounds me and I am represented in the space opened inside of it. A self-portrait in porcelain. 

With Intuition and throwing skills, I'm creating a memory of movement and imprinting my hands in clay, my body. One gesture, a sweep of porcelain in space. I'm looking for harmony between object and space, object and body. Simplicity is a major part of the process. The shape is basic, the material is pure and the color is clean. 

Porcelain ring. Drawing in space. biggest one is a 1.5-meter diameter, I had to customize a special pottery wheel. Also had to design and built a unique kiln in which I can fire them all to 1200 degrees. This technical process became one of the biggest achievements of this project.
