Using earthenware clay, I make functional and decorative pots. The surfaces of my forms are painted using heavy, colorful brushstrokes to create a feeling of movement and mood. I throw my pots on a slow turning kick-wheel.This technique allows for my exploration in gestural marks, natural edges, and looseness. I find inspiration from my home country of Ukraine. The subject of my
paintings often reflect the agricultural land and the Slavic people of Eastern Europe, specifically of Western Ukraine. I choose to make nerative work in order to share the rich culture and history of the place I come from. The intimacy and everyday use of pottery is a perfect way for me to place my work, love, and interest for Ukrainian culture into peoples homes.
