Path and Inspiration My work is often sparked by elements of our urban environment's weathered, worn, and damaged surfaces. I draw inspiration from the unintended beauty that emerges amidst the grit and chaos of city life, weaving together elements of abstract painting, architectural forms, and the intricate patterns of nature. I am drawn to the unintentional marks and imperfections that time and use bestow upon spaces and objects.
Process and Practice Pieces are crafted through the application of slab-building techniques, shaping the piece by hand. In several recent works texture is achieved by pressing cast impressions from road surfaces creating a visually intriguing and tactile exterior. To embrace the raw, earthy qualities of clay, the exterior remain unglazed, offering a tactile connection to the natural material. In stark contrast, the smooth interiors are finished with glaze.
