I believe in process. I perceive this time frame to be an entirely forgiving and unmistakably insightful segment in my ceramic-based practice. Always allowing myself to be both mentally and physically immersed in the process - this essential push and pull between myself and the material, clay, is where my experience of being a craftsman is enriched.
Infatuated by notions of scale and composition, I am interested in the embodied experience attained when meeting 3-dimensional matter. The affect of material existence is what drives my curiosity, meaning the (initially visceral) however, raw and immediate bodily response to a physical manifestation.
The forefront of my research and practice is attentive to form, shape, line, and space - fundamental yet instrumental notions from which my hypotheses derive.
The limitless possibilities of experimentation with the properties of clay is ultimately what keeps me coming back to this unique material. I have an undeniable fascination and inclination towards exploring the techniques associated with clay. Captivated by the challenges that arise when executing ceramic work; I appreciate that the material I work with challenges me as much as I challenge it.
