What is your favourite art medium and why?
Clay has always been my favourite medium since I was a little girl. Clay holds so much possibility. Every time I work with it, something new evolves between us in the moment. It's almost like clay acts as a mentor to me, encouraging me to work in new ways each day.
What inspires you most when conceptualising your ideas across ceramics and jewellery?
I focus on uncovering the space between the points of my Maluku Islands and Australian Identities. Within this personal research, I am able to express my findings through my sculptural and wearable work. You will see this inspiration through my chosen textures, carvings and form.
A quote you live by
"To go against the grain is the secret of bravery."
All worthwhile experiences are at some point difficult. And so it's always worth remembering to never let that stop you from obtaining it.
Where can we discover more of your work?

I am working on building a new online shop where you will be able to find all of my work in one place. The concept is to be able to offer small collections of ceramics and jewellery, accessible to anyone around the world. For now, I am using my Instagram accounts to connect with clients who wish to do a studio visit here in Melbourne or to organise a special jewellery commission online.
