"Making things by hand means a lot to me. It is almost meditative to see my own hands modelling clay and creating different forms. Sometimes an idea comes into existence by drawing, sometimes just touching, feeling and modelling the clay. I always try and find a balance between surface, form and movement. It is important for me to get the sense of the whole working process and enjoy to it."
