What drew me into ceramics in the first place was the intention to make functional pots.
Pots for every day use. Functionality is my first focus. My work is wheel thrown porcelain, which is demanding in the process, and very rewarding with its brilliance and durability in the end.

I like to keep shapes simple. But decoration is no less important to me than form. I draw on my pots after bisque firing. I draw on pots almost like I would on paper. The fire leaves a final mark on the drawing, that is not entirely predictable. My vocabulary includes repetitive pattern, animals and domestic objects.

My shapes, designs and images are contemporary, but draw from a long tradition of painted functional pots. Some influences I brought with me from my native Germany, where I grew up in Meissen and Dresden, an area with a very rich history of ceramic manufacturing.
