“I find remarkable importance in objects. This significance manifests in my life as a need to have, move, and, most importantly, make objects. I love to shift all of the furniture in a room in an effort to recombine a constant set of objects -- to fundamentally change what is inherently the same. In the studio, I am grounded in processes and formal investigation of functional forms with a very simple set of tools. These constraints provide me with defined space to consider and control. Altering the vessel, dividing it in layers, manipulating the form by combining horizontal and vertical lines, hard against soft, wet with dry, and pushing and pulling to capture a sense of expansion and contraction within a singular object. Playing among these opposing forces and allowing them to reside together within an object integrates the visual and the tactile, activating surfaces that have a complex physicality, which then asks to be seen and felt. This appeals to my fascination with human interaction with materials and the systems we integrate with them to serve ourselves visually, physically and functionally.”
