STUDIO CERAMICS

Sources of inspiration  
The sea, coast, weathered rocks, distressed wood and metal provide me with inspiration for my work.  I rarely copy any particular image but use them as a stimulus, as a starting point.

These are just some of the images that I find interesting and that I use as an input.
