"I work in the field of porcelain figurines. I like to challenge all aspects of them and extend our understanding of what a porcelain figurine is.
I am also drawn in the direction of depicting our less flattering sides. Or to depict disoriented, helpless individuals whom are trying to find their way around the world. Or cruel individuals whom are innocent in their cruelty just because they do not know any better.
My individuals in the pieces are often a mixture of bits of man and bits of animal, to in that way to move the stories into a mythological world, and in that way to make the scenarios less intimidating and get the spectator a little close because something harmless is expected.
I understand porcelain as a civilized material, I it is stimulating for me to use it to describe uncivilized situations that in the end can make society fall apart."
