Constantly drawn to nature’s many different landscapes, my central interest is in liminal areas between a landscape’s changing topography. For example, where an ocean meets a shoreline. This space is never static. Instead, it remains a visual example of the landscape’s constant flux. These ambiguous points of transition ruminate, and in doing so, provide moments of reflection, memory, and growth. In a similar way, I think of working with clay as a liminal process. The material goes through constant transformation as the object is being formed. The pieces I make reference the different landscapes I have experienced, and the impressions they have left on me. My studio practice alternates between exploring these landscapes through utilitarian pieces, and investigating them in more sculptural installation based works.
