Statement

The passion for sculpting that I developed few years ago I turned into a wonderful and fulfilling obsession which now feels unimaginable to live without. It’s very difficult to describe what’s happening to me when I sculpt but the sheer contact with clay turns my hands into a living-tool capable of seeing, transforming and creating. Sometimes it’s an overwhelming feeling of elation and pure happiness, other times it’s frustrating as it stumbles upon all sort of obstacles related to continuous learning and understanding the “subject of my creation”.

I’m devoted and passionate human being which I believe it is a great advantage to what I do. The last five years I devoted myself to learn how to sculpt and everything I received was vital. I feel like I’ve inherited the great deal of knowledge that is being passed from century to century, generation to generation and however “old” it may be it’s very much alive. I hope my work reflects what I am saying.
