I consider the relationship between my vessels and the user, seeking to
nourish and give joy. My ideas arise from the seemingly ordinary: the soft
texture and color of a plant, the patterns on rocks, the thoughtful design and
comfort of a chair. Exploring forms that leave direct evidence of their
construction and often reference textures found in nature. The applied
designs provide opportunity for playful response and enhance the
conversation between the natural and structured elements.
