 My work explores the limits of the ceramic medium, whether in the form of vases, sculptures or installations.

I manipulate the forces and movements produced during firing, while adapting to specific kiln conditions (electric or gas). I create juxtapositions of glazes and enamels on stoneware and porcelain, while also experimenting with the positioning of pieces within the kiln (by suspending, on a spindle, etc).

Using fire I reconstruct matter and volume.
