The vessels I make are inspired by anthropomorphic pottery that appears in the early ceramics records of many cultures. While very old pottery may not divulge all secrets to modern viewers, many of these pots to me seem to be prayers for bounty or attempts at understanding. I believe that an individual's personal experiences may find metaphor in the experiences of collapsed societies or in the experiences of nonhuman residents of the environments we share. I am interested in how environmental and personal collapse might mirror each other. As cycles of ecological boom and bust manifest themselves in the archaeological records of past cultures, so might the cycles of emotional dearth and plenty manifest themselves in the archaeological record of one human’s soul.
