artist statement
Currently I am focusing on developing my work with ceramics. I like to use simple, roughhewn shapes that draw out the organic nature of the material to capture the vulnerability and fragility of the living organism. The malleability of the clay expression and unpredictable outcome of the firing process also contributes to the feeling of the randomness that expresses the natural order of the living world. So that each piece tells its own story through the medium of the clay, it develops its own life, and I am not always sure what it will say until it is complete.
