My recent works refer formally to architecture and the visual language of design and pattern. Drawn to the tactility of something navigated by the hand, I create quietly nuanced forms which simultaneously express complexity and ease. They are un-glazed and sanded smooth, invoking a stone-like quality of the material. I add colorant to my clay as I seek to collapse surface and form into a singular expression. In my practice, I indulge in acts of labor as a meditative space, and see a connection between my labor and the labor of makers throughout time.
