I am inspired by architecture, structure, and how we interact with the objects that populate the spaces we occupy. 3D-Printing and slip casting have been the best methods for me to explore the themes of structure, shape, patterns and multiples - the core themes within my ceramic practice. I am drawn to and create forms featuring sharp angles, twisting, layering, and stacking. These elements, when combined, create a sense of movement in a static object.
