It is essentially inspired by nature, using natural forms, palpable organic textures, colors, sensations, emotions, and touch are key factors.
Her work is based on two essential lines: Nature at home and perfection, which is in the naturally imperfect.
The power to express your emotions, irreverence and energies through your pieces gives you great pleasure. Her pieces are handmade, combining various techniques of ceramic alchemy.
She also tries to use folders collected by herself in nature, using and highlighting the use of this paste on the potter’s wheel, with weights, in the sculpture.
Its pieces are dried natural, with a constant research and use of more traditional methods and materials. It has a zero waste policy, with recycling of materials and raw materials.
