I work with clay as a medium for sculptural forms and functional pottery. As a sculptor, I am interested in interior structures, matrices, and repeated shapes. I am drawn to natural history, microscopic life, and the study of the human body, relationships, and genetics which inform the content of my work.
As a potter, I enjoy sitting at the wheel to throw a variety of forms where I can explore how pieces hold volume and contain a sense of balance while attracting visual interest through their forms and surfaces.
I work with a range of clay bodies, from raku to stoneware and porcelain, and I fire in electric, wood, or soda kilns depending on what surface/feel honors the structure and story of the piece.
