Artist Statement

I create ceramic vessels and sculpture that tell the story of man’s ancient and universal partnership with clay through the study of cultural anthropology, geology, and religion.  I employ the use of ancient and modern global patterns, symbols, and iconography, while using both primitive and modern firing techniques. I am committed to creating work that can tell the story of humanity’s shared journey and virtues that is contemporary and meaningful today.
