STATEMENT

In my creativity there is a special place for water- as a symbol, element and material. Water is my main inspiration in sculpture but it also appears in my art installations as a material/ medium. Under the artistic expression of my research is the desire to spell in motion a ceramic material, a smooth change of the centric, geometric shape of the object.

I analyze optical phenomena that can be observed on objects in contact with liquids and glass. I use water in different states of matter, using water directly or treating it as a model, an inspiration for the creation of new forms and installations.
