I create sculptural objects using clay and found materials. I work intuitively, experimenting with the inherent potential and limitations of the media. Constructing repetitive forms, I never know precisely where the process and materials will take me. I push, pull, carve and distort until a form almost breathes in my hands. Found materials, discarded by civilization or nature, are irresistible to me. They serve as an archaeological study of my personal journey, while referencing the tension and compromise between built and natural worlds. Through assembly and installation, I allude to narrative, and forge a conceptual study of social mores.
