Artist Statement:
I do abstract ceramic sculpture. My work is hand built, from unglazed, stoneware. Each piece is one of a kind, inspired by my interest in nature, organic forms, and modernist design.
I try to compose a fusion of organic and abstract elements to convey a sensuous physicality, as well as an earthy elegance.
