“For me, the utilitarian objects that I make are my soliloquy of simpler times.

Through the intimate relationship of touch and response with clay, I am able to initiate a dialog through maker and material that becomes recorded within each piece. I want the element of touch to be honored in my work, as I believe that it is through the hand that we find honesty, vibrancy, energy and humility. The handmade work is a document of one’s intention and signifier of connectedness.
Working with clay is a catalyst for my strength as well as my vulnerability, as it is a discipline of labor coupled with uncertainty. My work is my connection to history, cultures and the natural world.
I feel that my handmade objects live best when they are present in personal, precious spaces, where they become a meaningful part of our visual and tactile landscape.”
