"My passion for ceramics was born together with the Mud is Mood project. It was a sort of love at the first sight. For the first time my ideas came off of the sketchpad and became concrete shapes. What fascinated me the most of clay is its moldable and primordial nature and the possibility of developing infinite shapes."
