“I seek a dynamic and collaborative relationship with clay, the core material of my practice. Working abstractly and directly with the material in different stages of plasticity, my work is process oriented and expressive. The hand of the maker is wholly evident, even aggressively obvious, as my fingers are my primary tools of intervention. Through gesture, I explore the tactile and emotional qualities of the material and the act of making. Time, movement, the inherent simplicity of the material and my existence are marked.”
