Through ceramics I attempt to create a sense of what is physically familiar to me. The organic qualities of a form – its curves and articulations, the proximity of its parts to one another, and of forms to each other – allow me to examine relationships. I try to turn fleeting emotions into permanent notations of experience. The elements that exist along side our bodies – the architecture we occupy, the landscapes we become a part of, the people we encounter – have the potential to shape our very being. I observe how people relate to one another or other things, how we control personal space around us, gravitate toward, and encounter other objects. I am interested in how we reveal such experiences through body language – by the way we might fall into each other, or recoil at the very thought.
