Artist Statement

I create ceramic works with a subtlety of form, obvious function and delicate

surface design. My appreciation for the rhythm and cadence that geometric patterns

creates on a surface has inspired me to use them in the majority of my work. The lack of

a defined focal point throughout a piece leads one to appreciate the work as a whole. I

enjoy merging strict, repetitious patterns from a distance, and the slight imperfections of

those patterns when the pieces are viewed up close. These flaws demonstrate a quality

that only handmade items have.
