"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"Mine are definitely not utilitarian objects. But I learn from them. I learn from that which is vernacular. I love things that I use- like the tarika- which is the washboard- or bowls, wooden spoons, big pots. They’re all very primitive, very crude . . ."
