I believe in and value process. This segment of my ceramic-based practice is abundant in ideas and experimentation, unrestricted and creative freedom; where right and wrong simply do not exist. Thinking through materials – I receive and respond to the information at hand, revealed by the process. This essential push and pull between myself and the material, clay, is where my experience of being a craftsman is enriched – mentally and physically immersed in the process.
I appreciate that the material I work with challenges me as much as I challenge it.
The forefront of my practice is attentive to form and space, fundamental yet instrumental notions from which my hypotheses derive. I am interested in scale and the embodied experience attained when meeting 3-dimensional matter. The affect of material existence is what drives my practice, meaning the (initially visceral), however, raw and immediate bodily response to a physical manifestation.
