Join us April 8 - 10, 2022
The primary objective of my work is to create thoughtful, personal compositions which explore our relationship with the world around us.
My forms are rooted in an aesthetic developed through a childhood spent in my father’s architectural firm and the art studio my mother taught at. Designs and concepts pioneered by architects and designers I saw as a child have influenced me through the years. Through use of proportion my work explores a marriage of design and craft.
My surfaces are informed by a broad range of interests and experiences. I am influenced by patterning and colors found in fashion, graphic, interior & architectural design. My glazing and patterning technique has become a starting point for determining the design of the form, allowing a conversation between form and surface. These surfaces include a tactile quality, and ecological inspirations juxtaposed with geometric patterns to create a rhythmic play between divisions built into the structure of the forms. The floral patterns are designed to highlight the important local flora of the world around me and stress the importance of our relationships with the natural world through highlighting often overlooked indigenous species of plants.
These forms, patterns, and glazes may at times seem busy. Their intent is to highlight and parallel the eventful and vibrant world in which we live by reflecting ways we often segment, structure and compartmentalize our lives while playfully providing handmade objects for everyday use.
