"My aspiration is to recognize the rhythm of my natural element and the rhythm of the element I work with and to succeed in giving movement to that rhythm. I reflect upon the mystery of opposites and contemplate the harmony of black and white, fire and water, cold and heat in search for the right balance between them. I believe that creating contemporary ceramic work demand from the artist a sensibility to the changing world in order to reflect that change or movement using one’s own symbolic language."
