Description of Offerings / Artist Statement
I admire clay’s resiliency and strength. The ability to withstand being stretched, beaten, and twisted; only then to survive extreme temperatures is incredible. I create work that reflects that which I’m enchanted with. I enjoy exploring the boundaries of the material as well as embracing the known comfort of it as a functional ware that one can enjoy through daily touch. When I’m creating things to be used or shared, I want my work to reflect the care and love I pour into it, resulting in something that you’ll want to hold and care for, like I do.
