Artist Statement

I work primarily in clay. It’s the only medium that allows me to create the breadth of work I’m interested in — functional, formal, and installation pieces. Clay responds to touch, and the changes are instantaneous. Each piece becomes a conversation in the moment between the clay body and my own.

I want my work to elicit some response, to create a feeling of connection to the piece and ultimately, to me. Whether it’s formal or functional, a mug you hold in your hands or an installation you enter, my goal is to spark a connection to the moment.  I’ve recently begun using video to document the process, capturing these moments and making them as archival as a fired, finished object.
