The coastal landscape exists in a state of liminality, an ambiguous point of transition where there is no clear definition of the beginning or ending points. That point where the ocean meets the beach is never static. Instead, it remains a visual example of the landscape’s constant flux. I am interested and inspired by the liminal spaces between a landscape’s physical features. In a similar way, I think of working with clay as a liminal state. 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 ideas of liminal space through utilitarian pieces, and investigating them in more sculptural installation based works.
