The functional objects I create emerge from observations of the lived space. Light shifts across a room, affecting how one perceives objects in the home; reflections and shadows cause relationships to appear between two (or more) surfaces and the spaces in between. My quiet, simple vessels with white exterior surfaces are inextricably involved with nearby objects; I am intrigued by the way the surface of one always affects the perception of another due to shifts in the intensity and direction of light covering the forms. Architectural, yet soft and inviting- the press molded porcelain cups and bowls I make are asking to be held; to be touched, to be used. Each vessel shares with the user a particular type of looking: one in which the act of noticing an object transforming from one moment to the next becomes a silent, almost meditative experience.
