Statement:

‘My works are cause and effect relationships in material form. Each piece is comprised of hundreds and, many times, thousands of hand rolled coils of clay. Their hand rolled nature gives each coil a slight irregularity and a distinction which informs the overall shape and patterns that comprise each work. Both consciously and unconsciously, I add my own input into the work in the stacking of these individual coils in creating manifestations of chaotic beauty. I have begun integrating the use of acrylic paint in my work in order to achieve more brilliant, varied color schemes that cannot be achieved utilizing traditional ceramic processes.’
