I am back

Hi everyone, I feel like rising out of the sea or something. I have been working for some time now but only recently I got clearer about what direction I want my work to go. Porcelain has finally won me over but it took me a long time to let go of the freedom I got so used to when working with the rough stoneware clay. But the soft and creamy consistency of porcelain has now seduced me and I am beginning to enjoy handling it and embrace the very different firing problems At this stage I see myself switching from one material to the other when the work demand it.

I have also started to experiment with printing directly onto the clay surface as well as making my own decals and find this sometimes difficult but very stimulating.I an cuurrently working on an installation in porcelain and the work should soon be completed, at least the first version of it and I am excited.
