My work forms a bridge between intangible concepts of joy, generosity and lusciousness and tangible objects of daily use. Notions of innocence expressed through jovial colors, flowers and birds reveal aspects of humanity I intend to cultivate within my own life. Evidence of my love for layering decoration and allowing the clay to express its own nature emerge through this “soulmorphic” representation, and I enjoy how they form a subtle narrative: transforming intentionally functional work into something more expansive.

“It is said that if one can remain still within her truth a bird might land on her; viewing her as a benign aspect of nature.”

– traditional Buddhist proverb
