ARTIST STATEMENT

My work blurs the lines among object making, presentation, and community
engagement with handmade ceramics, emphasizing the connection to one other
and the food we eat.

Reinforcing the influence of routine and ritual as the thresholds of culture.
Beyond a domestic feature of private life, what we eat gives shape to our national
and global cultures and identities. Food is an essential element of the human
condition and has long been the inspiration for my art practice, focusing on
mealtimes as social sites where tradition and innovation mix. From tableware to
food specific presentation vessels, my ceramic work promotes the power of
simple rituals that elevate the ordinary to the elegant. 

Combined construction methods of wheel throwing, hand-building, and slip
casting create streamlined forms with clean lines and gentle organic curves
punctuated by asymmetry. The smooth surfaces alternate between gem-like
areas of gloss, sugar-like satin matte glazes, and areas of color-stained raw
porcelain. This trichotomy is inviting to both sight and touch.
