With my current body of studio work I continually strive to play and push myself beyond my comfort level. I find much inspiration at the market. The excitement I find in the colors and patterns in fruit, food, flowers drive me to make in the studio. So often the real informs the created. This is what I love so much about making pots. The relationship that exists between the real, the created, and the user. The life a pot has outside of my studio. I seek to create imagined objects and spaces that serve as moments to catch a wandering eye and allow the viewer the opportunity to pause. Arranged moments of curiosity and wonder.
