In its millennial existence, ceramics has received so many definitions. For me there will be always one more – that undefined yet. Some sort of research which gives you vital energy and the freedom to choose. I believe in both beginnings, the plus and the minus, the rational and the irrational, the visible and the invisible, yin and yang. Observing the world, processes and phenomena, I always try to discover the “otherness” that I know is a hidden and invisible part of the world – invisible only at first sight – and makes the world harmonious, perfect, and complete. Looking for the antipode, the mirror image, I often just invent it, if I don’t find it.
