‘I am inspired by nature every day. From very early on in my life I loved plants. Especially the architectural appearance of flower heads and seed pods.

Over 30 years ago I started pottery as a hobby. This hobby has turned into a full-time profession about 10 years ago.

Most of my work is decorative ceramics. Ideal for display in the garden, on a balcony or on a patio, or indoors.

I start with throwing the pieces on the potter’s wheel; subsequently, clay is added, cut out, and sculpted until the final shape has been achieved.

All work is fired to stoneware temperatures. Therefore, the decorative pieces are frost-proof and suitable for outdoors all year round.

I love making my own glazes. The experimenting never really stops! I want the colours of my work to reflect the brilliant colours in nature. And through the change of the seasons. I want to let the glazes tell a story inspired by nature, travel, landscape, and environment. This is my way of painting with minerals and fire.
