About my work

They say, it‘s the oldest craft of mankind. The Venus of Dolni Vestonice in Moravia is estimated to be between 25,000 and 29,000 years old. First references to pottery wheels come from Mesopotamia and are 3000 years old. One might think that with such a long lasting experience, everything has already been said in the field of ceramics. And yet there are always new things to discover. The variety is inexhaustible.
Concentration is important to me.
I work exclusively at the potter's wheel. It took me a long time to get where I am now, and I am still learning.
Since the beginning I am searching for the beautiful vessel. What seems like a serial production, is in reality a very individual thing. With every vessel I leave my personal traces, so that it is recognisable. There are works that do not succeed and others that I do not want to give out of hand. But I always reveal a piece of myself. My focus is on tableware. I want to create a connection between a contemporary form, suitability for everyday use and also the Thuringian vascular tradition. The combinability of forms and uses is important to me.
So it could be that even in the future archaeologists will draw conclusions from ceramic finds about the state of civilisation.
