Observations of daily life and inner sensations are an essential part of my artistic process. In my practice, I make solid forms that come into existence using different materials and material combinations. The choice of tools, chemicals, and heat are crucial elements all coming together through a combination of craft-knowledge and creative experimentation.

I am a ceramist, model maker based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. My practice explores the relationship between individuals and their surroundings, it oscillates between different conceptual frameworks. I often return to my work with a change in perspective and an eye for balance.

I graduated from Hacettepe University  with a bachelor degree in the education of Fine Art – Ceramics and Glass. For my master,  I did my practice at Escuela de Arte Superior de Cerámica de Manises.
