In  my work, a special place is occupied by  porcelain. Feeling my own character in it, I have no goal to subordinate it to myself, I try to find a compromise between what I want to say as an author and how this material would like to  express yourself.
I want to use the properties of this material — whiteness, strength, transparency — in unusual forms, direct, with living character. I often take the details of objects and factures taken from real things, plants, and combine them so that the work turns out to be a bit paradoxical, strange. I am attracted by such a synthesis — a reality-replicating surface with an unrecognizable shape.
I  love biscuit porcelain, that is  not decorated with glazes, and usually combine different techniques — casting into gypsum molds, hand molding.

In  ceramics I explore what I can not afford to do in porcelain, mostly this is a large volume, or when you want the brightness of colors, a special texture. Like any clay, it is infinitely variable and ready to embody any idea.
