Life is full of constant change and movement and my work carries questions of curiosity amidst such change and response. As I remain enraptured with clay, I work towards a gesture to highlight its pliability & fluidity. The interaction of moving clay to asymmetry brings an energy and humanity to a vessel that captures a moment in time.
I create ceramic vessels to enrich the home, evoke curiosity and challenge ritual in the mundane.
Most of my work grows out of seeking to cherish such moments of movement and spontaneity - even if seemingly mundane. I currently look to embrace smaller details inside the overall animated gesture. I want to gain the first impression through a profile but draw the viewer in close through small quiet characters of form, pattern & texture.
