Buffalo, NY

Following in the lineage of fine china I produce objects for domestic service, adding my own sense of affect and defect. When you think of porcelain, you first consider its physical qualities of strength, fragility, translucence, then porcelain's class association and cultural significance. The work's primary use is that of a functional object and all the pieces perform as they should. My urban environment, Modernist architecture, backyard forts, 19th century European porcelain, Minimalism, and Song Dynasty porcelain all inform and affect the work.
