My work is an examination of texture. The very nature of clay allows me to explore the many options. Each piece plays with contrasting surfaces: rough verses smooth; matte verses shiny; large-scale verses small-scale. The juxtaposition of textures helps to add visual depth and tactile interest. The surfaces of naturalistic forms are enveloped with texture. They are an invitation to touch. As you run your hands over, the sensation is a reminder of a place you once enjoyed.

Color is also an important element in my work. I use color to enhance the textural quality. Different aspects of color such as value and intensity of the color affect how the piece is perceived. Color stimulates our response mechanism. It elicits emotions on a subconscious level. The tactile and visual experience is heightened with a few adjustments in how color is applied.

I hope that my work will bring a sense of wonder and curiosity. The combination of familiar forms and textures will cause you to marvel at things you notice if you take the time to slow down and experience the world around you.
