With Sascha Hoffmann,
Please briefly describe your career and how you came to pottery?
I've only been pottering since 2018 and do the whole thing as a hobby, although I'd like to do full-time in the coming years. I came to pottery by chance. At that time I was invited to some friends’place and worked there for the first time on the potter's wheel. Ever since that time I have loved throwing on the wheel. I'm a professional cook and it's a good thing to design the plate. Often a dish comes to mind and inspires me to design a plate to match. With vases, I never know exactly what I want to do beforehand, which is what happens when I throw them.
Which ceramics do you produce in your workshop?
Mainly basic commodities, such as vases, bowls, plates, cups. But I have also tried washbasins.
