I design and fabricate objects for domestic use. Through color, imagery and form, I hope to create pots that are expressive and inviting.

I am fascinated how we personalize and define ourselves through the objects we use and accumulate. The clothes we wear, the cars we drive, the things we decorate and furnish our homes with - all of these objects reflect our personality and aesthetic proclivities both publicly and privately.

I am interested in the phenomenon of how we look and shop for objects. Once the requirements of fit, occasion, and agency have all been established, (a size 11 running shoe that fits comfortably, for example), to what degree are we further attracted to the point of purchase? Is it the pattern of the shirt, the cut of the dress, or the color of the shoe that makes us want to own that object, or is it simply a matter of cost and convenience?

Making pots is a way for me to reflect on the people, places, and experience, here and gone, that I know, love, and carry with me. Every piece gives me the opportunity to reconnect with those experience and emotions past and shared. Through this dialogue I hope to share something of my self with you, a smile perhaps; and in doing so, I might make pots that you want to live with.
