Artist’s Statement: I am a ceramicist and I am openly addicted to clay. I
produce work that has a strong connection to popular culture and
embrace traditions in ceramics. The sculptures I create are inspired by
kitsch figurines, especially Red Rose’s Wade figurines and miniatures,
and include cultural icons and reference popular movements to create a
narrative within my work. It is important to me that I include humor in
my work and it is often impish or sarcastic and is sometimes politically
charged. I also like to make things creepy and disturbing. Each series I
do is very different from the previous and each explores a topic which
is influenced by my passions or movements in contemporary culture which I
feel I need to make a comment on.
