Artist's Statement

During the last few years porcelain pieces were being made. They are decorated with a dry-ash-glaze on the exterior. The interior is glazed with a standard high gloss glaze. This is done to emphasize the contrast with the dry exterior. Pieces are always partly glazed. This is done because I consider the character and color of the body to be a important aspect of a piece of work. I only make one of a kind pieces. On my website you can also find technical information on how to develop an ash-glaze. I am always interested in the exchange of technical experience.
