Vase 1 (4/2017)
8 x 7 in.

I am an artist covered in clay. My forms are a tactile pursuit as I work to achieve dynamic balance. Each vessel leans, shifts and ultimately finds a point of counterbalance before opening. Carbon trapping using masking slips and combustibles creates a surface depth. After saggar firing the slips peel away revealing the precious balance of matte flowing into silky shadows. It is in this finalé I find my repose.
