My works are sculptural and functional. I like to create pieces more than just daily use of pottery. It could be visually beautiful and changes the surroundings or provides meaning and harmony in your home. I wish my ceramics’ pieces bring the sensory catalyst for conversation at the dinner table, enhancing the taste of food and bringing people together.
