  • Each piece I pot individually on the potter’s wheel and thus each piece is unique.
  • I pot with the Australian porcelain mass “Southern Ice” and fine chamotte Westerwald stoneware clay.
  • All my tableware is glazed with self-developed food-safe glazes – with emphasis on “ash glazes”.
  • In ash glazes, the main ingredient in the glaze backfill is ash from burned wood.
  • Right now I have privet and laburnum ash included in my offsets.
  • My work is all dishwasher and microwave safe.
  • My porcelain and stoneware works are tight because I fire at 1280°C – 1300°C in electric and gas kilns.
  • Ideas, design, planning and execution are mine.
  • My pottery is so delicate and fine that the body is translucent against the light.
  • This turns functional contemporary design into beautiful special everyday tableware.

Who I am?

 After elementary school, I attended the regional technical school for ceramics and kiln construction in Stoob/ Bgld. and graduated in 1992.

This was followed by 3 years of master classes at the HTBLA Ortweingasse Graz and the Entrepreneur Academy at the WIFI Graz.

Finally I passed the master examination for ceramics on 16.10.1996.

  • My craft spectrum includes ceramic and porcelain pottery, mold making, tiles and tiles, custom designs and small series, as well as my own glaze development with a focus on “ash glazes” and manufacturing.
  • I pot each piece individually on the potter’s wheel and thus each piece is unique.
  • All of my dinnerware is glazed with self-developed food-safe glazes.
  • Right now I have privet and laburnum ash included in my offsets.
  • All of my work is dishwasher and microwave safe.
  • I fire my porcelain and stoneware work at 1280 – 1300°C in electric and gas kilns.

Since September 2013 I teach as a vocational school teacher the subjects of ceramics and tiling in the Landesberufsschule LBS Graz 4.
