The work that I create is minimal in design and focuses on function and form. Sometimes with a simple and elegant surface design, including intricately painted gold luster foliage, or at other times, boasting an energetic design with a wider color palette, often found in the bowls and platters that I make. I want my work to capture my human expression in the minute details of the form without compromising comfort or function; such as in the tactile impression left from the heel of my hand on the base of a cup or the visible finger indentations left in the silhouette of the glaze, a reminder of when it was handled. These seemingly insignificant details within my work capture the unique process of its own human invention. Clay is one of few materials able to physically capture the ephemeral softness of humanity, and this uniqueness is something I am continuously thinking of in my creative practice.
