Artist StatementI’m intrigued by concepts of growth and totality, of movement and rigidity. How these concepts interact, how they collude and collide with each other is something I try to explore in my work. A teapot has a definite function but its form, the way it looks and feels, can be manipulated. The graphed irregular patterns I use to decorate my pieces with, the pooling of the glaze and the posture of the form aim to express a movement and elasticity, a kind of breaking free from rigidity.
