„Attracted by the classical, and in wondrous way tension-loaded forms and proportions of her
containers and objects, we literally discover the tangible qualities of the material which was
otherwise trampled under our feet: The granulations, stains and sprues left over from the casting,
the drying and crazes, the burrs and fractures of the mold removal, the so-called flaws of the
molding process. And concomitantly her handling them, the concretion and ports.
Briefly: The cultivation of peculiarities of the material and its process of manufacture, creates a
new value by magnitudes, which we never thought to be possible with this „mass“.
The interaction with the material is innovative, exemplary and yields in sustainability.“
Prof. Axel Kufus
