My own work is often inspired by the interaction of man, nature, and time and how these elements are formed and influenced by the world around us. I choose to work mainly in ceramics and sculpture because it allows me the opportunity to create objects that the viewer can physically interact with.
Through an ongoing discovery of process in my current work, I’ve developed an expressive and loose approach that emphasizes the maker's marks. These are deliberately left as relics to help inform the viewer of my process. Surface treatments are then used to further enhance these remnants and convey a sense of age rather than newness. The resulting piece offers a history of its existence and initiates a dialogue about time, nature, or our perceptions of the object.
