I have been studying sculpture for about five years, I had few years break now I am back again at it. The process it self is meditative, you just concentrate on the clay and what you can do with it, sometimes with frustrations, as it does not in anyway resemblance what you are trying to achieve. At times, you get into a flow and time just passes without noticing. Until, well, your shoulders burn after three hours of concentration in a same position. your mind free of any outside, mundane or worrisome thoughts. Here is a piece in process and one, finally ready and some figures waiting to be burned.

I’m a student of life; I see beauty in nature, people and the world around me, small details and complete view. Without the ability to actualize an idea or concept, art would not exist. My work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that I have about myself and the world I live in. I do not limit myself to one medium, style, or concept. Inspiration and ideas change. My knowledge changes and grows. Each piece I create is simultaneously an extension from the past, where I’ve come from and what I’ve learned, as well as a preview of the future, where I’m going. I do not classify myself as just a photographer, as some might think from looking at my work. I am a sculptor, a painter, a photographer, an artist. If a viewer stops for just a moment to view and reflect on a photograph, a photo collage or a painting I have created, then I have succeeded in my work.
