Essence of my craft
Simple and functional objects complemented with subtle details, crafted with love and care.
Timeless and unobtrusive beauty enriching your everyday.
When you look at the artwork of an artist, you see the reflection of their sole.
Timeless, natural, and unobtrusive beauty
Beauty is a complex and subjective concept that can elicit different emotions from different people. Modern art, for example, can inspire, or confuse us depending on how we perceive and interpret it. However, there is still a universal aspect of beauty that we all sense in the same way. This kind of beauty is natural, timeless, and unobtrusive, and does not depend on the changing fashions or preferences of the moment.
There is so many things made in the world every day I feel there is no room and no purpose for making just another trendy and cool artifact. I try to put my making aside from all the cool things so it could withstand the trends, being silent and modest, leaving us the space for our own stories.
Simple and functional objects complemented with subtle details.
In my work I focus on simple designs, simple and functional objects we can have practical use in or daily lives.
I like to play with contrasts between glazed and unglazed surfaces, highlighting the ancient nature of clay that existed long before humans started walking on Earth. I sometimes add subtle textures to the unglazed parts or leave the whole exterior unglazed to reveal the soft and warm quality of the clay.
Mastery of crafting a refined ceramics resonates with my soul and my being.
I pay attention to details, such as how the lid fits on the jar, how the teapot pours tea, how it feels silky smooth in our hands or how it feels when lips touch the rim of the cup and how the bottom of each piece is smooth and does not scratch the table. I love my craft and I infuse every piece with care and attention.
Bringing silent and long-lasting joy to your life
We surround ourselves with various objects, often they are linked to who we are and what we value. They help us create the atmosphere and mood in our homes and around us.
The things we use on our daily lives will bond with us over time. In the morning we reach out for our favorite cup and bowl, and when sitting together with family or friends for Sunday dinner, we tend to set the table with the same tableware. They help us make the moment special. Those items don’t tell us stories of the artist who made them – they tell us stories of our memories and the beautiful moments we had together with our loved ones – and they help us preserve the stories and pass them on to the next generation.
My greatest hope is that those items I have made with my hands would become a part of your story that you write with your daily life, bringing some silent and long-lasting joy to your life while using them.
A glaze with many names: ice crackle, tortoise shell, snowflake and many more.
My main limited-edition signature collection.
Made with thick layer of crackle glaze where the fractures develop the look of cracked ice. Hence also its name – Ice Crackle.
When the odds become even during the firing process the iron rich glaze develops beautiful golden microcrystals. Sometimes covering the whole ware with golden hue and other times just few golden sparks like stars.
Glaze that’s originally called “Tea-Dust” and was mainly used in Imperial ware.
