I am generally attracted to the raw and the unrefined. My most significant pottery influences have always been the folk traditions of China, Japan and Persia. In my work I attempt to combine the archetypal motifs of these traditions with more contemporary imagery inspired by advertising logos, graphic novels, and urban street art. By shuffling and recombining these proven formula, it is my hope that the muse of familiarity appears cross-dressed as innovation.
