The "Emptiness" series aims to express the emotional states that we cannot comprehend in the inner world and offers a profound experience to the viewers. While examining the bond between craft and art with the forms he shapes on the potter's wheel, he reinterprets the local culture with Terra Sigillata slip inspired by Ancient Greece. His creative language allows people to emotionally connect with the forms. The voids representing the depths of the inner world invite viewers on their own inner journeys and allow them to find the echo of the emptiness in the human soul through the artist's emotional exploration.
