” I explore these different directions through my ceramic work. On the one hand I make vessels that are a response to memories of time spent in my grandmother’s sewing studio. My fabric, clay, allows me to translate the behavior and techniques of the sewing room into new forms. I can also create forms that are both bricks and windows. They can obscure or reveal. The forms can meander along the wall and my eye can explore space both within and around. These components frame a story or are a story in their own right.”
