I make compositional sculpture and craft ware based on my fascination with the built environment and our human connection to the world through design. I gather inspiration from the fields of architecture, vessel making, furniture, and the built environment, and draw aesthetic and formal links between these vast and varied sources of inspiration. By way of abstraction my work unifies an expansive diversity of subjects into a cohesive visual and contemplative experience.
As an observant wanderer and appreciator of design I am compelled by aesthetic and formal similarities across disciplines. I find the way a building rests on its foundation to be relatable to how a table rests on a floor, or how a cup rests on that table. This imaginative and playful way of thinking has become the starting point to my creative process as a maker. The objects I make are loosely based on things in the world that may be tiny, life size, or massive. By shifting scale in an arrangement of multiple objects, my work triggers the imagination of the viewer. At the confluence of design, architecture and the built environment I find a direct connection to our shared human experience. My work is equally an homage to my love and fascination for the designed world and a conduit for finding a human connection to the objects that surround us.
