In my work, the delicacy of porcelain is revealed in the decoration: the dialogue between light and shadow, space and substance. The pieces are quite sturdy, being dishwasher and microwave proof.

Instead of strict form, I seek emotion. To me, the light that filters through the piece awakens feelings of inner calm and tranquillity one can return to time and again.

Rice grain porcelain is an ancient ceramic technique. Holes, pierced in the object wall, are filled with glaze after biscuit firing. In the second firing, the glaze melts into the holes creating small translucent windows.
