My special thanks goes to Michelle Dethurens who enabled this beautiful exhibition.

Setting the stage...

Installing the pieces for the exhibition
Getting ready for the exhibition. I am trying to find the exact place and the right angle for each piece :)

Happy with the results!


I can't imagine anything less than these naturally dyed wool felt cases to protect my pieces, designed and handmade specifically for the Reflections 2015 by a traditional feltmaker in Konya, Turkey. Thank you Silvia Ines Garoselli and Busra Karakaya, Atolye Ikonium, for their beautiful work.

Just to add some flavor, I have participated a raku‬ firing with some of my pieces. Playing with the naked fire at 980°C, letting the pieces infused with smoke in an oxygen reduction atmosphere is quite an experience and the results are rewarding.

For more photos of this firing, you can check my facebook page.

The spaces created by the groupings of multiple pieces constitute an essential element of my work. This is where the interior and the exterior clash; the light and the shadow interplay; the private and the public interact. 

These installations could mirror the little villages with unspoken hierarchies or the vast urban areas with impersonal public places and non-communicative, identical buildings to live.

The concept of this project is getting clearer. I want a darker, more somber, harsh appearance. I am now trying darker clay bodies and bigger sizes.

I want my clay sculptures, these abstract triangular architectures with their unproportioned and nonfunctional openings, to be read as a metaphor of the secluded, muted houses that lock one inside, the darkness within, the unknown.

Grogged Stoneware, High-fired at 1280°C, h=18 to 30cm,

Second firing of the heavy grogged clay gave me an array of sandy colors and a new surface texture. Still looking for the name of the project though. 
Working title is: Muted Houses

Stoneware, biscuit fired, h=25 to 39cm

I am doing trials for my new clay project. The working title is: Muted Houses.

These are the results of the first firing. I used a very grogged stoneware clay. I like the textured, down-to-earth appearance of these pieces.
