My works are formal explorations where form, vestigial appendages and arrangements are combined to create conversations within each form and between multiple forms. I want the works to occupy an undefined space between reductive minimalist geometry and curvilinear baroque exaggeration. Vestigial appendages protrude from stacked forms, investigating proportional relationships and the unsettled state between balance and imbalance.

Thrown and altered vessels, based on biomorphic forms, are hybridized samplings of pots, the body, mutations, self-replicating or dysfunctional systems. Thrown vessels are closed, assembled and arranged to create groups with the potential to expand or perhaps recombine and continually re – make the configuration, presenting an ever – expanding potentiality.
