I have been working on this body of work since 2008. I am interested in combining multiple processes and materials to create functional ware that is also sculptural. These pieces stem from observations of nature, my interest in architecture and concepts within modernism. I intend to exploit the beauty of ceramic materials as a means to draw comparisons to these ideas but do not want to replicate them realistically. Function is an important aspect to the art that I make. I want people to interact with my work and build personal connections.
