My recent works present quiet and nuanced forms which speak simultaneously to complexity and ease. They are unglazed and sanded smooth, invoking a stone-like quality of the material. I indulge in acts of labor in my practice as a meditative space, and see a connection between my labor and the labor of makers throughout time. These works do not recall a specific era or place, but rather use archetypes of geometry and other formalist language as a means to communicate more broadly. In this manner there is a connection in my practice to other disciplines such as architecture and design. To achieve color in my works I add a stain directly to the clay creating color that is inherent of the material, rather than applied to the surface of a form.
