For Connections I fired hand built paper clay pieces to earthenware temperatures layered with numerous glazes. This process transforms my ceramic pieces in a unique and sometimes unpredictable way. Since I was a child I liked to put things in some kind of order and rhythm to explain life and connections. This desire is expressed in my sculptures in the multitude of links and colours visible in the different layers and constructions, intercepted by empty spaces. Without connections we are nothing. Connections to nature, families (including chosen once, it’s not about biology), other humans, culture and history. Not all interactions enrich us. We also fight, feel empty and forlorn. But then we build again.
