An interest in objects that serve a specific purpose motivates me to make functional pottery. I am also interested in how pottery can inherently initiate a certain situation with a single user and companion. It is through the grouping of particular pots that I am able to suggest a special moment to occur.
It is the interaction of my pots that lead to certain scenarios alluding to the ideas of companionship and solitude. Groupings of bottles or cups are about inviting myself, and the viewer to slow down and take notice of the subtle diversities in form and the infinite variety of surface texture and color attainable through wood and soda firing. The scale of my work brings the viewer in close to examine the subtleties of form and surface, and creates a more intimate experience through its utilitarian qualities.
