    Artist Statement

    In my life creating, I have a large collecction of handmade jewelry and diferent kinds of crafts. I am now interested in pottery that has been proven to be joyous and heart felt to me. I am not attracted to the clasical clay, I have swiched to create something completaly different and unique. From that day THE DRYPOTT was born.

    Looking at something different, sensitive and responsive to the human touch, I started to work with drywall mud. After few days at practicing with the drywall mud I noticed it responded to all my touches. Once dried and received much beautiful oil paint color as decoration, I realized that they both married charmingly to become a life long partner to create the amazing artwork.

    All of my designs are just as unique but no two are alike that be recreated.

    Description of the work

    This is a new technique that is originaly handmade. I have created this technique after years of looking to create something unique and original, which now I call this awesome technique DRYPOTT.
    DRYPOTT, which are pieces made with drywall mud. The pieces are molded by hand with using different kinds of recycled items such as cardboard, spoons, etc. to make diferent shapes.
