My mission as a ceramic artist is to create museum quality vessels
and sculptures that reflect a vision of the contemporary while radiating presence.
The pieces should speak to the viewer, enhance their environment, and evoke
the changing moment. This does not mean that they will always be interpreted
as beautiful but I do hope they will impart a wow factor, causing contemplation.
I want people to touch my pieces while being touched by them. In honoring ceramic
traditions (East and West), I strive to elevate the ordinary, exploit perfect imperfection,
and acknowledge the creative process. My focus is the home and office decor market.
