Everything is made of layers. As humans, we are made of layers. Paintings start and end with a layer.

I create each vessel on and off the wheel, constantly thinking about composition. Using each material and step in the process of making, I build the structure of each vessel. As the layers of each vessel or set of vessels are understood, the structure is built up and broken down, embodying both stable and dynamic compositions.

I work in an ongoing state of discovery and experimentation, informed by a range of sources. The weight that a painted object can have within a composition informs my decisions about color and scale in surface design. The tension between mass and line found in Constructivist sculpture helps me to create connections between layers. I am informed by Mimbres Pottery and how field is divided by form, asymmetrically and symmetrically with repetition and variety. I am fascinated by the proportions and edges found in objects made for specific uses like the tools in a tool box used to fix what we rely on each day, I
enjoy pushing these edges and shapes into my vessels. Using all of these elements I strive to create cohesive compositions.

As I work through these formal ideas, my vessels take on their own character and become approachable and personal. I continue getting to know myself as I understand the vessels I make and find joy in the process of discovery I have created for the user of my vessels.
