Handmade pots are commonly engaged with and appreciated simply for their function. They can also hold the power of creating more meaningful rituals and relationships with objects that support a vital human interaction. There is a gratifying feeling that comes with using a tangible item, one that involves a physical sensation that cannot be easily described. My work attempts to address ideas relating to our humanity and our engagement with objects in life. Evidence of process is a consistent source of pleasure for me as a maker and allows me to insert a level of humanness into my wares. Diverse atmospheric and graphic surfaces adorn often modest forms that possess a hefty quality both visually and physically. Making pots enables me to create work that can be interacted with in a simple manner while still posing a sense of intellect.
