Ceramic Houses and more
I have been working in clay since 2003, both on the wheel and handbuilding. My early handbuilt work focused primarily on carving into thick pieces to create texture and movement. In the past couple of years, I have been making slab-built houses of all different shapes and sizes. I play with the surfaces to create different effects. They can function as planters, utensil holders, tea lights, decor and more. This work stems partly from my love of architecture and of home. I see the house as a metaphor for home, warmth, family, struggle, love, shelter... I look forward to sharing these small, whimsical pieces during Somerville Open Studios.
