In my work, self-formed ceramics go through a cycle of shattering and recombination. They are repeatedly printed with the industrial water transfer process and reassembled.

The printing process, which allows objects to be covered with a pattern or decoration over their entire surface, is applied in a water bath and completely encloses three-dimensional objects.
The repetition of these steps reinforces the holistic impression of the impression of imperfection and is an attempt to control the irrational, rampant and uncontrollable. and uncontrollable.


I feel this desire very strongly precisely because of the restrictive situation in my situation in my environment for many months and I include it in my work. There are accumulations and freaks, put together as strange pairs, differently scaled and intertwined.

These are photographed and the resulting photos re-printed onto them. The result is a of ceramic sculptures in spatial scale as well as photos for eventual prints. In addition, I make portrait series with raw clay of people who performatively interact with their own bodies and this clay. These interlocking portraits become part of the into the described cycle of deformation and recomposition of my sculptures. and expand it. In this way, my thoughts become capable of speaking and I and I can condense them as well as the material I work with.

The settings shown in the photographs were created at the group exhibition "Plants in Prison in the Wilhelmsburg Ulm and include water-transfer printed ceramics, mirrors, plastic and wooden panels as well as lighting elements.

My works always react to spaces and change according to architectural and lighting conditions. They outgrow themselves and shrink, are never the same - as if they were the same - as if they were independent living beings.
