My ceramic sculpture is both meditative and interactive. The life of my work carries through time as it passes from hand to hand and within space around one another, absorbing and reflecting the energy it encounters through physical evolution and purpose. I am inspired my geological evolution and human development causing my work to often bounce from bodily to environmental. My history in ethnographic research and personal growth informs my choice to examine recombinant and reclaimed material. Clay, for this purpose and many others holds dear to my heart.
