I was born in Switzerland and move to the U.S. in 1992, in my late twenties. I lived in Connecticut and California and moved to Houston at the end of 2015.
What mostly attracts me to ceramics is the marriage between three art forms; the actual creation of the piece - whether it is wheel throwing or hand building-, the glazing and the firing.
When creating my artwork, I strive to harmonize the relationship between from, function and nature. My pieces are the result of the use of simple organic forms and I usually stay clear from fussy decorations.
My current body of work is split between functional and sculptural ceramics.
