Artist Statement

I set out to create work that allows for a sensory performance by exploring recurrences on pots, through shape, color, and/or raised tactual patterns. I strive to produce work that will have a certain tensity to it, at play within the surface. 

I’m generally focused on using slip-casting methods to produce work, but I am considering expanding my use of molds into the sculptural style of ceramics. 

In my current body of work, I’m focusing on implementing patterns on to the forms. This will be done through: carving patterns in the mold wall; using color transfers to relay a pattern on the clay; further manipulation of the surface through textural means.
