Artist Statement

My recent work are experiments in how the clay I use flows and moves over a form naturally and how far I can push the materials to emphasize the movement in the form. They are also experiments in how color and movement interact with light. Rather than beginning a piece with an end point in mind, I begin each piece with questions. How can I suggest a certain kind of movement? How will form interact with a found piece of design, like an existing light fixture with an interesting or inspiring shape? What will happen when certain colors are layered on top of the light? So much depends on the natural movement of the clay. The entire endeavor is a practice in embracing flow and letting go of expectations.
