I share my time between work in the most basic material, clay, and the most immaterial world, the digital.

Thus, the resume includes experiences from diverse places.

 

The ceramic studio work —that has taken many directions; table ware, art objects, public commissions... Alongside I have worked with education, communication, project management, editing and photo. I also undertake shorter assignments for companies and organizations.

 

But — at all times — I am a ceramic artist.
