I am a Latvian artist currently living and working in the Potteries, England. My work is mainly handbuilt figurative sculptures largely created in stoneware and porcelain, often combined with metal wires, which are implemented in sculptures after they have been fired in an electric kiln.
In my sculptures I am trying to capture a spontaneous overflow of one`s feelings. Each sculpture demonstrates an affective state of consciousness, such as that resulting from emotions, sentiments or desires.
The guiding maxim in my work is a phrase I heard at the age of 17 from my pottery tutor, while attending Latvian Community University
"It doesn’t matter if your pot is perfectly straight or not, the essence of all art is in how much of your heart you put into each piece you create."
