Clay is the most important tool in my trade. It’s worth noting, that clay also happens to be one of the oldest building materials used by mankind, and it’s thanks to it that great buildings of the past (or even whole cities) came to life. Even animals tend to use it as a material for their homes. For me – clay is my means of artistic expression.
My inspiration for the “Kids” collection comes from surreal works, cartoons, comics – or to put it broadly – from pop culture. I really like including references to Nick Cave’s songs in my works (and Nick Cave himself is an inspiration to me). Seditiousness, sins and XXI century problems, consumerism, war, politics and grotesque nature of everything around us – those all have heavy influence on my works.
No matter how experienced one is, the ceramic work continues to be a challenge. Every sub-process carries a risk that may damage the final product in one way or another. The sculpture can end up broken, the glazing can end up looking differently from the intended vision and so on. It’s a medium requiring not only technical knowledge and patience – it also requires the ability to cope with failures.
Living in minimalist home doesn’t mean to deprive yourself of any decoration. In contrary, your clean home interior will gain in style thanks to several decorative elements in contrasting colors. The rule is not to overwhelm the surface and to maintain the simplicity.
