Artist statement

I have an affinity to use and alienate already existing, industrially manufactured products. A trivial objet trouvè is transformed by a location change and material-transformation to an individual object and unique ceramic piece.
I take things their original function, through their new function the objects get a completely new value and are put into a new context.
The viewer is referred to the triviality. It’s playing with being and appearance. With sense and nonsense.
I integrate wire, plastic, paint, plaster, concrete, as well as ready mades with ceramics, which however always remains predominant and preferred material. Often graphic works - like drawings, photographs or etchings - complete my ceramic objects.
