I am inspired by forms and textures found in the natural world. Light is an integral part of my work; I am interested in how it interacts with the objects I create. I explore how light can be reflected, absorbed, radiated, and experienced. Working primarily in porcelain, most of my pieces are made on the potter’s wheel and hand-carved, while other vessels are cast from translucent, porcelain slip, and altered. As a maker, I strive to create work that enhances a space and is useful in daily ritual.
