"I would like to exploit the painting possibilities inherent in ceramic art for creating pictures. In order to make ceramic pictures, knowledge and experience about the specific potentials of ceramic colours are needed. You must develop and set a palette.
The pictures presented are built up by several layers of colours and have been fired many times. Colours that melt or do not melt, shrink or do not shrink, as well as dull, shining, translucent and opaque colors have been used. The possibilities are endless.
I make pictures in both clay and concrete. The pictures are presented as single pictures and series. "
