My work is primarily concerned with the making of meaningful objects. I am fascinated by the burst of energy that finds a new form, and inspired by the calm obsession required to winnow that shape into the most ideal proportions. I then apply color and line to the surface of an object in a playful re-examination of the original idea. I use this process of invention, perfection and appraisal to charge a cup, bowl, or sculpture with a vibration which can create a positive disruption in usual patterns of living. If I can create and share something unexpected through this exploration, then I feel that my objects can be of use.
