TILED STOVES AND CERAMIC ART
FOR DYNAMIC INTERIOR DESIGNS AND PUBLIC SPACES
Cultural heritage is combined with artistic expression and dedicated work to combine functional ceramics with unique form in architecture.
I always give my artwork full focus regardless of scale, be it public commissions, unique tiled stoves or sculptures.
In recent years, I have also undertaken commissions to create art in public spaces such as hospitals and schools. My work is often formed into soft, undulating shapes which are asymmetrical to create harmony.
Regardless of the type of project or sculpture, presence and care is taken with the materials, so each unique detail will enrich the overall expression and fulfill my idea.
”Craftsmanship is at the heart of everything I make. Each piece is made by hand with care, with great care.”
