Art

Making sculptures is the best way to express my inner feelings. Clay is a perfect material to make round shapes. The incitement is to create tension in an almost amorphous form. By combining shapeless with human body parts the sculpture becomes more alive. 
Sometimes they are funny but other times they express sad happenings in my life.

One way-direction dialogue


In a certain period of my live I had the feeling that I couldn´t speak out loud. But it is not in my nature to become quiet. When I felt really overruled again I decided to express my frustration in a sculpture. I love Hans Bellmer´s line drawing and got inspired by them. Therefore, I decided to use the string technic. 
This sculpture is made out of stoneware and finished with terrasigilata before being fired at 1260 ℃.

Stork´s sack


Where do the babies come from? Motherhood took a lot of my time when my children were young. In exchange I got inspired to make Stork´s sack. Like in many of my other works I combined figurative details with amorphous forms. Personally I find this work lightly erotic with a wink.

Angry ass


I made this work in a difficult period of my life. I was really angry. Using my art is one of the best ways to process my emotions.
I have been working with clay for more than 30 years and find it a great medium because it gives me the possibility to change the work during the process.
This work was built up hollow with slabs and adding pieces of soft clay. Before firing I painted the surface with terrasigilata.
Stoneware fired at 1260 ℃. Dimensions 38 x 37 x 33 cm

Disillusion


Many times, life doesn´t turn out the way wanted it to be. Sometimes it is better than we expected it but other times we get disappointed. Disillusion is a description of those moments I lost hope on reaching what I was longing for.
