Maker's statement

The vessel "Essential form" explores the ideas in 1 to 4 and makes it tangible for the first time in red stoneware, a new break from black and white porcelain since 1975 and from the wheel. 1. line is form 2. form is volume 3. Volume is vessel 4. Line, form and volume are all decoration.
