Artist's Statement:
I pursue a type of harmony with a piece, within an environment and with people. Travelling solo, drawing inspiration from different cultures and experiences, I focus on producing limited edition and one-off pieces, developing innovative new techniques that enable me to realize concepts ranging from exclusive tableware to Large-scale Sculptural pieces for interiors and exteriors.
