Seduced by the duplicity of both delicate and strong beauty observed in nature, my work reimagines, rather than replicates my memories. Shapes are abstracted from flora, textures are pulled from the deep seas and an intriguing coupling occurs. My wheel thrown and hand built stoneware forms serve as vehicles for exploration as I work to meld body and surface. Using a personal visual vocabulary, I focus on the interplay between deeply carved lines of undulating curves and intense hand texturing that pierces and prods as I work to create an energetic dynamic within each vessel. Extracting texture and repositioning it into modern design emphasizes my play on duplicity. The process of repetitive hand texturing can be experienced as a working meditation. The discreet application of glossy clear glaze resembles an aquatic glisten as it appears to trickle along the porcelain coated stoneware. The resulting appearance of these objects often implies fragility and grace, secretly disguising the strength and stability of their constitution.
