I am a scientist and the ceramic pieces I make somehow always refer back to my background. I make slip cast semi-porcelain small bowls and urns which I use as a background for play with glazes. I also use raku firing as a technique to obtain (random) organic patterns. Biology is my main science and I enjoy translating images of animals in my mind into clay figures. These birds, sheep and cows are usually raku fired to bring them down to earth.
