My studio practice is driven by the desire to innovate. Ceramics has
provided a rich platform to make discoveries about science, culture,
and art.
The nature of my process makes the work playful, with a sense of
movement, highlighted by bright and bold colors. I often reference
historical cultures and riff on their designs, methods and innovations.
Currently my work is focused on an inlay technique I am developing
that simultaneously combines pattern, form, and color. I utilize a
variety of wooden rollers to form the work which allows the surface to
maintain its pattern but moves and changes based on how the form
grows.
Using my inlay technique, I am able to collaborate with the inherent
nature of clay to create an integrated and fluid motif, allowing an
element of chance into my work, and endless opportunity for color,
pattern, and formal references.
