About my Work

My work is derivative of the human experience: Like so many ceramic works, we too are malleable in the youth of our formation, each of us humble vessels forged in fire to find our own life's great intent. We are all vulnerable to complete ruination in the wrong hands, despite the great intention of our maker.

I strive for an aesthetic that bears witness to the journey of a piece start to finish, contrasting carefully planned lines and symmetry with makers marks left behind by tools and my own hands. I am drawn to the ways that I can highlight the human resilience that those makers marks suggest, battle scars endured to reinforce the strength of a piece, as in all of us.
