My work is inspired by old forms and glazes. Simply fashioned everyday earthen objects from rural areas fascinate me as much as the high art of glazing in ancient China. The first ox blood glazed objects date back to the Sung Dynasty, when glazing was – as it continues to be today – one of the greatest challenges for ceramicists. In this way my pieces show the connection between traditional ceramic craft and contemporary ceramic art.
