Artist Statement

When Maker and Material reciprocate one another and the forces of Nature; harmony and chaos, are brought to dance, Beauty is born. Working with clay is a personal moment of awe and a patient, determined, retracing toward Beauty. Between the object and the person also, is reciprocity, when engaged together they are vessels of Nourishment. That thought is what holds my hands holding the clay, all becoming vessels sharing Nourishment- hold and be held in awe.

These sculptures and pots celebrate the relational state they exist in, constituted by the relationship between them and their user/viewer. Textures are imprints of the outer world, alterations call attention to inner space, and materials are chosen for practical, aesthetic, and symbolic values. My intention is to offer invitations in the form of objects, to experience them and the present moment for you.
