Ceramics

Working with clay has been important for me since childhood. At pre-school age, without kiln, I did a variety of adhesive clay experiments in which I tried to improve the water resistance of the objects. Later, at school age, I started to understand the importance of firing the clay object. I did various tests in open fireplace at home but unfortunately I didn’t understand the effects of rapid temperature variations on clay: sometimes the fireplace and its surrounding were like the bombing aftermath.

I’ve shared life-long road with clay – a road with its ups and downs, with many conflicts and ”reapproaching periods”. Exploring the history of ceramics, as how it has intertwined with the history of mankind have created a respect for the material
