ARTIST STATEMENT

This work is an accumulation of everything that I have been working endlessly towards in these short four years. It is a monument of all I have learned about the medium of which speaks to me the most. My work has always been about the Clay and the Wheel, but through experimentation, research, and experiencing failures I have found a way of working which excites me and is undeniably new.

In my quest to reinvent the wheel I learned much about the limitations of the medium, what it will and will not do, and with my work I aim to exploit those flaws as well as construct compositions which comprise of the elements of art I find most relevant to my work; Line, Form, Shape all-the-while balancing these segments knowing the hazards they face as they prepare to face the fire of the kilns.
