Artist Statement

I seek out the difficulties posed by casting porcelain. I am inspired by the process, most of all by its errors and accidents. The objects themselves are not the main focus; they are a side effect of my explorations. I do not believe that a plaster mould as it exists in a factory, smooth and fine, is a true plaster. I do not believe that true porcelain is smooth, submissive and docile, even though it is often presented as such.


Chasing accidents,

Always checking what is through the looking glass.
