Artist statement 

With raw materials and using my hands to manipulate clay. I have found a certain quality of life, it is an affinity for constructing and designing.  my work is to make a form, adding elements to change the surface finding a tangible attraction to the hybrid object. loading in a kiln, firing and then receiving something that will last for possibly thousands of years is exciting. I like how utilitarian ceramic pieces bring a tangible human element in the work to the user. It is an interaction that really can show the thought that was involved in the making. It is fascinating how ceramics involves some of the most primitive processes and advance technology to produce a desired outcome.
