  • About This Artist

    I found my true love for ceramics the first time I transformed clay into something tangible. Since then, I've been experimenting with a variety of techniques. My primary goal is to fuse functionality and art. Textures play an essential role in my work.

  • Q&A With This Artist

    A: "Although the pottery wheel is the primary tool, hand-building with slabs and coils plays an important role in my studio. Embossing is my primary decoration technique, and now I've been experimenting with underglazes decorations. After the bisque fire, each piece is individually glazed and fired once again at a high temperature to ensure that all pots are food-safe.

    A: I love working with clay, especially porcelain, because of its plasticity transforming raw material into something valuable and beautiful.

    A:  One thing that isn't necessarily apparent in my work is all my pieces are handmade one at a time. I don't use any mold or slipcasing. Each piece I make is truly one of a kind!

    A: Youtube and Instagram have a plethora of excellent artists demonstrating their crafts. They are my go-to for learning and inspiration. Whenever it is possible, I visit the Freer and Sackler Galleries in Washington DC for inspiration. Ancient Asian art is a true inspiration for me.

    A: Crafts is a two-way street. The artist transforms raw material into beauty—the viewer receives its positive energy, created through love, care, and passion. We have all learned to appreciate community and connection during these dire times and understand that everyone needs to play their part for society to work correctly and be healthy.
