A consistent point of departure for my work has been the ceramic vessel and grappling with the balance between form and function. I am interested in the way that pots have the unique ability to serve a multitude of roles and functions. They can be decorative, they can create nostalgia, they can reference history or places, they can bring attention to more tactile or ergonomic concerns, and of course, they can be used. I am also interested in the accessibility and familiarity of the pottery format with regard to my audience, and how the perception of pots can be exploited in the context of the domestic landscape.
