Every day I am amazed to find that over the years, clay continues to challenge me and teach me about itself, but more importantly about myself.
The ceramics I create transcend the purely functional mindset of pottery in favor of a more visual and textural language that has evolved out of observations and experience: out of nature and culture. I find the bits of randomness and disorder most inspiring. Nature, culture and my life’s processes are sources of ideas and inspiration.
There is an element in human nature - spiritual, physiological, chemical - that relates all people to each other. It speaks a common language, creates of us a common culture, and to everyone is, in some way, known. My work seeks to suggest rather than name that element.
