Artist Statement

I use stoneware and porcelain to construct gestural, geologic work that utilizes texture and varied surface finishes to evoke topographic and cartographic imagery. I often use the vessel as the skeleton upon which naturalistic texture, industrial markings, or a thick slip is applied. I build the feet, handles and spouts to resemble lithic structures, then finish the surface with multiple stains and glazes to emphasize the contrasting surfaces. All pieces are fired in oxidation to cone 6.
