My inspiration comes from my mixed family background, my travels and from everything I see and feel. I love taking pictures and I use the camera to capture the objects and moments that will later influence my pottery.  

In my sculptural work I try to catch the colours of the nature by experimenting the togetherness of mat and shiny glazes and sometimes leave the pieces plain with no glaze to catch the essence of the clay.

I fell in love with clay in my early teens in Turkey but didn't have the chance to get my hands dirty until after I came to London and enrolled to a part time course. Since then I have dedicated all my free time to pottery and joined Kingsgate Studios.
