My clay work is about my fascination with harmonizing and integrating disparate parts - colors, texture, shape and form.
My goal is to bring together a beautiful art object and a utilitarian piece of pottery that can be used in our day to day life.
I try to achieve this by always keeping in mind human scale and physical touch in conjunction with the active visual play of form, design, and surface.
I work all kinds of clay depending on what effect I am after.
I carve, wipe, rub, draw and paint on the clay at difference stages all the while listening to the pots and what they want to say.
It is a dialogue that continues until the final firing.
Things I think about when working:
Landscaped – cityscape
Organic vs geometic lines
Interior – exterior
Quiet – loud
Smooth – rough
Practical – abstract
Color – black and white
Domestic - worldly
