Artist Statement

Making pots enables me to bring multiple interests into a variety of forms. Historical objects, modern design, and domestic considerations all inform my making process. My hope is that function, form, and the surface of my pots will bring the user respite. Clay presents the opportunity of constant problem solving, and combines my interests in aesthetic research and manual labor.
