I look for the historical, cultural, and the contemporary significance of things made from clay. My work is a marriage of form and imagery in ceramics. The conversation of form is about fluidity, intuition, intention, grace and purpose.

The forms that I make are largely functional. The images that envelop them are generated from my own photography. The results are surreal narratives that are open to subjective interpretation. As you view and explore a piece, the significance of individual images and the overall story lines will change over time. My hope is to elicit an ongoing sense of surprise and foster an evolving relationship with the piece.
