Artist's Statement:
I make functional ceramic pieces that strive to demand an awareness of the tension between "form and function" and the domestic everyday life we live. For me, the way a mug touches my lips is a chance to explore the boundaries of my self and the material world: where I begin, where the mug ends, how those perceptions change over time. The mundane nature of functional pieces speaks of our need to enter the world through the domestic, the kitchen, the home. It is those objects that we rarely think about and often take for granted that afford a humble joy in their everyday use.
