Never Ending Story

No Longer Available




red clay, underglaze

My work is characterized by consistency, perfection, thoroughness, and handmade work, which emphasizes free will, randomness, and casualness. I have been thinking about the relationship between the ideas, notions, and concepts of tradition and contemporary art. This is the most significant reason for my personal need to continue creating and exploring, while constantly questioning and pursuing the idea of how I could create a new horizon of ceramics as expressions within my work.  In all my pieces, diverse characters appear together and communicate with each other, speaking to viewers with their expressions and faces. Formally, the work addresses implied images and stories. The shape of the faces could be self-portraits of myself.
