Animals (especially owls and cats) and flowers are a fascinating source of inspiration. I like to display them in a stylized and simplified way. The flowers I create are an abstraction of shapes, rather than a mere imitation of nature.
The tea bowls and coffee cups are all handmade. They should immediately feel good in the hand.
The chawan is a tea bowl that is used in Japanese tea ceremonies.
The teapots I make are mainly used as a decorative object.
Bowls and vases might look simple but that makes it interesting to make them. I build them by hand. For bowls I prefer a structured exterior surface. For the vases I find mainly inspiration in natural shapes.
