As a maker, I revel in the collections of objects and possessions people choose to surround themselves with and the rituals and intimate experiences that are generated by those articles. Objects used for the daily cup of coffee or the annual social gathering with family and friends can express much about the individual. For me, I have an internal need to control and organize the things around me. This desire navigates my aspiration to master the ceramic process.

The repetition and rhythm of throwing on the potter's wheel establishes the structure to define the nature of this desire. The many crucial steps and the time it takes to work with clay, enables me to impose absolute control over the objects I create. Nothing can be rushed and the attention to detail required reinforces my need to precisely manage the entire process. Within these multiple steps I find the inspiration for most of my ideas.
