This is a project i did some years ago. My idea was to let the clay show me the way it wanted to become.Together with the clay, i investigated the inner movement of the clay, the plasticity of the clay, how far can i go before it cracks.I can now see how important this project was for my current work.The inspiration for this project comes from the power of the nature, the creating forces that never stops, forever moving foreward though invisible for my eye.

For me the process is essential, the process of thinking , of making and of being. In my craft I am thinking in poetic terms. Poetic notions, motions and reflections are of great importance throughout my creative process. I wish for people to stop, to pause for a while and think about, the being. Where have we been and where are we going? Cracks, irregularities of form and glaze (what others call imperfections) becomes a metaphor for memories about places once visited or dreams you once had ...Things lost.
