The work is an empty volume turned into a solid, coming from the internal part of a piece of pottery. The inner part of the pottery is uncontrollable and often hidden.The result is always variable. Each piece has its own unique appearance; it is beyond the designer's control. This becomes a spectator of the process and the result; accepting its process and condition, beyond its functional and aesthetic qualities.
