 Creating with clay allows me to respond in a tangible way to personal relationships, interactions, and experiences that leave lasting impressions. I love exploring the materiality of clay and challenging its limitations. Textures and patterns from our natural and built surroundings serve as endless inspiration for my forms and surfaces. Through my work I hope to offer subtle reminders of life’s simple pleasures, harsh realities and the relationships we share with each other and our environment. Pieces are constructed with cone 6 porcelain using a combination of wheel-throwing, hand-building, cutting and altering techniques. Surfaces are finished with a layering of under-glaze, hand-painted imagery, stenciling, mishima and printed decals.
