A combination of inspirations have converged to develop my work. I am inspired by nature, architecture, and seams of tailored clothing. The merging of these three inspirations transform flat porcelain slabs into functional structures of use. I create illusion in my utilitarian pots with repetitive textures creating patterns to enhance volume or create a visual depth on my forms. The functionality of my work is paramount, but does not create rigidity in the work. I try to stretch volumes to create breath of form and fluidity of space within structures and between the seams to please the eye and the hand.
I make the work to be pieces that can be picked up used and enjoyed.

The body of work represented here is an innate connection of elements in nature, in the sewing process, and also in Art Nouveau.
