Light and Shadow: Thirst is a celebration of the desert sun.
Statement: I’ve always been fascinated by the transformation of a lump of clay into a ceramic object. The essence of a piece can stay the same while almost every other characteristic, its color, size, weight, texture, etc. all change throughout the process. That unpredictable and ever-changing quality keeps the medium fresh and exciting for me. I also tap into that somewhat chaotic side of things by making use of color and improvised abstract designs. These elements have no concrete meaning in and of themselves but can nudge the mind in different directions. I enjoy hearing the explanations viewers come up with while attempting to make sense of my work as I often wonder about the objects myself.
