I mostly work with clay, which I dig up from a river close to my studio during the rainy seasons this allows for the clay to soften and become finer, as the water purifies the clay. Through my experimentation with clay, I have learned how to use this organic medium, determining how clays should be mixed and what works well together. There is a fluidity to my process, as well as a very technical and scientific approach when it comes to glazing and firing the ceramics; the outcome is never knowable, and that excites me. This process has helped me develop a natural language and relationship with the medium, which has now become instinctual and ritualistic, a part of my everyday experiences.
My sculptures are fused with poetry, drawn from my personal experiences they portray the more intimate and honest parts of myself. The poems are there to ignite a connection with the audience and, at the same time, spark a conversation. Being honest in my poetry helps me to define my artworks and their forms; to a degree, I am handing over my true self through these artworks.
