Artist Statement

My work is defined by my observations of how forces in nature shape the environment. It is intriguing to me how seemingly random and sometimes subtle events craft the earth’s crust to create works of infinite beauty.

For me it is the ceramic processes that translate these natural phenomena into a working language. The more this language is understood, the more it can be used to express artistic vision.

In nature, the peaks of a mountain range, snowflakes in a storm, or trees in a forest appear at first glance to be identical, but upon closer scrutiny, each has its own amazing character because of variation of process.

My goal is to create works that speak of these differences.
I want them to become primarily a physical record of the forces and materials that I use to express my artistic vision.
