I was born and raised in Talsi, Latvia. I learned in a local art school. From the beginning I was very good at pottery and producing items with the "wheel". RIght now im a potter and i do it for living. Mostly I make practical things, his favorite items to make are bottels and bowls. I invetented a useful model for a bowl - the cover (or top) is tied to a bowl so when you take it off it stays on the side of a bowl. It is very useful because the cover doesnt take up any additional room on the table. I also have had exhbitons of my works.
