Sculptural clay and functional tableware
Type: Ceramics, Sculpture

My work explores the world of whimsicality or comedy using hand-built clay objects. My influences are found in everyday life, stories, dreams, and tales of real-life and slightly exaggerated adventures. I also find joy in the tactile nature of clay, which allows me to create creatures that are humorous or lighthearted, and at times, provides an avenue for disparate parts and pieces to come together to produce both known and unknown beings, plants and animals. More recently, I have taken a deep-dive into functional, rustic tableware pieces, but whether creating usable, functional work or made-to-be-viewed-only pieces, I enjoy creating.
