My studio practice stems from a fascination with objects and their ability to materialize through culture. Historical and contemporary ceramics provide objects and ideas that become platforms for reinterpretation and investigation through a variety of materials, techniques, and forms. Each idea is investigated in a separate series where I explore the potential of each “series’” utilitarian function, visual representation, and concept. My curiosities lead the way in my investigations where I search for what these objects can become.
