My inspiration is drawn from the intricate shapes and textures I
observe in the environment. I am attracted to patterns that repeat
themselves naturally on large and small scales and the configurations
within objects that have been transformed by time and place.
The past is written into the surface like script. I read the images and
either use them directly or further translate them into abstract
Ceramic materials go through a series of transformational processes,
paralleling those of the natural world, which bring a physical presence
to my work.
Work generally available from:
My work is made with different stoneware clays and porcelain. Prepared clay bodies are inlayed into one another, with lines and marks etched into the surface. Oxides and glazes are applied sparingly to preserve the stone-like quality of the clay. The work is once fired to 1280° in an electric kiln.
