I consider myself as an explorer, seeking new ways of layering, swirling, forcing, bending, breaking and reusing surfaces. In my current body of work I am grappling with new ways of navigating my roles as mother, and maker. As a result I am finding ways to reprocess older pieces through using them as foundations for new sculptures. I believe in second chances for pots, sculptures, installations and people.

I chase unexpected outcomes through the use of multiple firings. Each firings a new element is added to the piece furthering it’s transformation from fail to fixed. Not all firings are successful, but the learning that takes place is a win for me. I make earthy lasagnas, I respond to changes and observe balance in my work, & seek to push an uneasy tension between materials and form.
