In 2016 he was obtained the ‘Crossover’ Award at the Emerge 2016 ‘Awards in Portland, Oregon, United States.
The artists beautiful ceramic forms are abstract but also influenced by the world around us. In his ‘Petrified’ Forest Series, concentric, vertical tree like forms are clustered together like a frozen forest, exploring shifting light, texture and the relationship between the forms – the negative space.
