Vulnerability

Vulnerability is a recurring theme in my work. I usually work with porcelain; the material itself radiates fragility through its essential qualities of whiteness, thinness and translucence.

This circle symbolizes the circle of life. The wafer-thin leaf in the opening is a metaphor for nature in general and how sensitive and vulnerable nature is. The impact of human intervention in nature is enormous and can be a threat if we do not consciously deal with it. This porcelain work wants to ask the spectator's attention and confront us with the vulnerability of our ecosystem.
