Throughout my life I have been concentrating on being ever present in the moment, my surroundings, and the world around me. Most of my life has been spent in rural and semi-isolated settings, but now my time in an urban and worldly setting has found its place in my work. My latest vessels have shifted toward monochromatic color schemes as a more minimal approach presented by my current urban environment. Currently I am focusing on striking forms with understated surface decoration emphasize the infrastructure that has always been an essential component in my pottery. Over the past decade I have been building a body of work that embodied the history of pottery within the field of ceramics. Recently I have decided to focus my attention on ideologies in modern design, expressionistic and abstract painting, minimalist sculpture and architecture. I am continually questioning my perception on decoration. And the resonance of history will always be an inherent part of my creative process.
