As a ceramic artist, I have grown to reject functionality. I push the limits of my medium to the extent of the clay’s physical means. It is this relationship between structure and tension that I find most appealing about my process. My process is not limited to one technical method, but implements thrown, slip cast, and hand-built elements. I find that the most important part of my art making is to allow room for the evolution of a form or concept as it begins to exist in space.
