Empty (2015)
stoneware, iron oxide, glaze, found bird’s nest, human teeth
18 x 8 x 8 in.

I create organic and abstract objects using clay and found materials. Working intuitively, I combine textures to explore points of physical, sensual and conceptual tension. Calling on a sort of adaptive resonance theory, I assemble, carve, stitch, and weave until something otherworldly yet viscerally familiar almost breathes before me.

“Empty” is a mother’s meditation on the passage of time, and quest for reliquary. Where in these grown humans is the mark of my hand, the imprint of my embrace, love and forgiveness?
