This is the Zettabyte Era. Each of us is presented with thousands of bits of information every day yet we actually note only a very few more of these than in decades past. To help stay afloat in this mire of technology and media inundation, I choose a reductive process of making functional ceramics. My work serves its purpose by providing a sense of economy, balance and completeness to the user. The elegance of my body of work stems, not from more layers, more information, rather from simplicity, craftsmanship and relevance. Each piece I create feels like a moment of...quiet. Whether wheel thrown or hand built with slabs, my pieces are individually made, one at a time, utilizing porcelain and stoneware.
