"We see, we read – but do we question, or do we take the traditional, obvious interpretation unchallenged? Can we be encouraged to seek alternate meanings, inspired to look beyond the narrow line that often divides, to find a new way of looking? A hole is both the...

Terrapolis I find it fascinating that our material clay is the one constant while technologies continue to develop and push our designs and methods in ceramic making forward. My body of work illustrates how 2D laser technology works with precision on the surface of...

Small Worlds Opposed to a direct evocation to form and texture, my work could be described as ambiguous, almost fictitious in its contrived representation of geological landforms. Rooted in glaze experimentation and manipulation my work is ingrained in material...
