My work represents my interpretation of the Wheel of Dharma; my path through
life. Everything I do is my practice; breathing, working, walking, making. I
choose porcelain to reinterpret thoughts on life, work and the surrounding world.
Porcelain is hypnotic for me - with its ethereal translucency, its strength and
fragility, It transports me to that meditative space where there is no time or
space.
My pieces are minimal, fine and very quiet. They are a continual exercise in form, function, design and simplicity. While making the Yunomi, each one is very
intimate and personal. My hope is that when used by others, it allows one to be
in the present moment, mindful and humble. Perhaps even raising one’s level of
awareness and presence.
It has become a meditation on my interaction with my world and the everyday
experience with a vessel and its design – I create pieces that beautifully meld
into our daily lives, give us pause and help celebrate life and our shared
humanity and rituals.
