Artist's Statement

I draw inspiration for my ceramics from my work with young children--specifically a sense of play and experimentation, big emotions, childrens book illustrations, and the freedom that children themselves embody when they create. I am also inspired by textile design and fiber arts processes such as weaving, quilting, and pattern making– and I use these techniques to inspire both my processes and surfact design. I like to explore the overlap between functional objects made from cloth and those from clay.

I aim to celebrate the functional and everyday object by bringing a sense of play to each item I make.
