Artist Statement

As a Maltese artist living and working in Denmark, I feel my feet immersed in two very different cultures., the central Mediterranean and the Scandinavian. Considering this, my work does have a particularly unique twist.
Over the years, I have sought inspiration from various sources, both natural and man-made which lead me to develop my own idiom in expressing myself in clay. My latest work mainly attempts to transform retrospective images of form and space from my past experience into 3D sculptures. 
At times, small decisions regarding the final shape, colour and texture of my work seem so hard to take. In these moments, I struggle to strike a balance between conscious and unconscious impulses to make the right decision. Describing technically my work, I would say it is mostly hand build, some fired ware with applied photographic and silkscreen decals, on-glazes besides other glazing methods. ...
