Artist Statement
I look at my objects as utilitarian vessels, and think about how they are used in the home. The feeling of the work in the hand, soft to the touch as the texture changes from a glossed glaze to soft bare clay. I like to let the objects speak for themselves, to be simple, quiet, and smart. I want the user to experience their unique rituals with wares that are both present, and yet, not. Objects that do not command attention, but still, when placed in the hand, the user knows by whom the work was created.
