“I am interested in what the past can reveal about the future. I create ceramic objects that look decayed, weathered and beaten up by time.
Recent work builds on the previous platform of decay but begins to refer to more singular vessel structures fabricated from a composition of many vessels. As a result, there is a macro/micro cellular/building block reference that I hope suggests some of the insights that quantum mechanics, chaos theory and mythology might bring to our insight of the world.
My newest work returns to figurative vessels and solid forms with fossil references. Ideas about time, the past, the future and the often subtle and sometimes chaotic relationships between the inside and the outside drive the narrative.”
