Artist Statement

I have always appreciated ornament, and it’s ability to elevate the ordinary into something magnificent. I am driven to create work that is beautiful in its precision and attention to detail and I approach functional wares this way, using my mark to transform the everyday object into something precious.

My seamlessly combined double walled pieces with pierced exteriors use physical depth to promote curiosity and a desire to interact with the piece. By carving my designs with a deep line and a pillow-like finish I work to blur the line between surface and form. I use symmetry and repetition in my designs to further engage and captivate the viewer. My decoration reflects my love of the tight geometric designs of Islamic tile work, the grand rib-vaulted ceilings of gothic cathedral, and the graceful curves of art Nouveau.
