Dirk Aleksic  
Born 1967 and grown up in Germany. I quit my Japanese Studies at Free University Berlin after I discovered the Soto-Zen-monastery Hosshinji in Japan, where I lived after a couple of short stays from 1998 until 2007 and received ordination as a Buddhist monk in the Soto-Zen-tradition. After my return to Germany I taught myself pottery and since 2011 I have got a professional studio in Berlin. My work is strongly inspired by modern but also traditional Japanese ceramics. Doing nothing special is what I consider the highest form of art.
