''Following in the lineage of fine china I produce objects for domestic service, adding my own sense of affect and defect. The work is heavily indebted to the implicit qualities of the material used in its creation Porcelain. Indeed, when you think of porcelain, you first consider its physical qualities (strength, fragility, translucence), then porcelains class association and cultural significance.''
''The works primary use is that of a functional object, and all the pieces perform as they should. However, the degree of functionality is in question. For example, the cups are translucent, allowing light to break down a difference of interior and exterior space, and also forcing one to consider how the cup is used, or risk destroying the cup. And it is this contemplative state that allows the simple cup to be elevated to near ceremonial object- an important part of the daily ritual of drinking.''
