The daily relationships individuals have with food, what we eat, with whom, and how, can inspire bonds between individuals and communities at large. From tableware to presentation vessels, my work is a channel for connecting elements of the social dining practice. People gather round to fulfill a common humanistic need to feed the physical body and social soul. The rituals of the table define collective human constitutions.

 My design-focused functional tableware sets the stage for serving shared food. I use a combination of wheel throwing and hand-building techniques to construct porcelain forms with streamline silhouettes characterized by clean lines and gentle organic curves. The smooth surfaces alternate between gem-like areas of gloss and sugar-like satin matte glazes. This dichotomy is inviting to both sight and touch.

 I am focused on sharing – of a meal, of the handmade object, of a dialogue. My work is a spark to encourage connection with one another and the food we eat. The act of offering food is one of the basic roots of all relationships. My work blurs the lines among object making, presentation, and community engagement with handmade ceramics.
