Abstract: Through working with clay for about three years, I have become aware of the nature of this material and its wonderful plastic response when handled with love and care. Originally deriving from many centuries past, clay is the most abundant, ubiquitous, and accessible material on the earth's crust. Ceramics is the perfect combination of what the ancient Greeks regarded as the four elements of which the world was made. Ceramics is made of earth, shaped with water, dried in air, and made durable by fire. Enjoying the versatility of clay, I tried to develop an idea of my potentials for free form in ceramic sculpture. Also I want to find a deeper spiritual content for my own life through the medium of ceramics.
