“Whether functional or decorative, all of my work emerges from drawing. I build vases to reflect the shape of an image, and alter plates in order to accommodate gesture. I’m interested in developing a strong relationship between the imagery on the surface and the form itself, and think of my plates more as sculptural paintings than as pots with brushwork that decorates their surfaces. I don’t want imagery and form to simply relate to one another; I want them to feel absolutely integral.”
