I am interested in creating a sense of movement or continuous change, particularly on a visceral or sensual level.
Two interlocking forms can create a dynamic energy which enhances the sense of movement, or harmony. Some forms depict the contrast between different energies, while others are about synchronicity and closeness.
Underlying the different forms is the belief that energetically everything is connected in a continuum of movement.
This language of movement is also influenced by current ideas and happenings in my life, (often suggestive in the names).
The ceramic forms are made using a combination of throwing and hand-building. I use stoneware clays, which are fired to 1100 degrees (indoor pieces) or 1260 degrees (outdoor pieces). The surface is sealed with Terra Sigillata or Under-glaze.
Each piece can have one, two or three component forms.
