ARTIST STATEMENT

The slab constructed ceramics I create are a reflection of my interests in innovative design and fine craftsmanship, from mid-century modern furniture and household objects to African and Japanese textiles and traditional craft. My work gives voice to these deep-seated influences while exploring relationships between interior and exterior, form and surface, and interplay among pieces.

 

I am committed to ongoing investigations into compelling design and technical mastery. While the works I create are recognizable - a box, a bottle, a bowl - they are intended to evoke a deeper response whether by revealing my sources of inspiration, offering an opportunity for aesthetic contemplation, or providing the deep satisfaction that comes from interacting with thoughtfully crafted objects.
