I make work that explores the effect of global influences on the craft traditions of many cultures, and as a reflection of current global themes. My pots are complex in their creation though they still illustrate the intrinsic beauty found in the everyday ceramic object. I use a variety of complex historic patterns as a common language to take the user beyond utility, and hint at the deeper beauty of unfamiliar places. By blending pattern, surface, and form, my goal is to create work that simultaneously elicits a visceral and intellectual response, followed by a contemplation of the work as a whole. If one holds a piece that I have made, my work is complete; if ones attention is held by that piece, the work is understood.
