in the realm between fantasy and reality, my sculptures explore
the organic processes of growth, replication, and locomotion.
Deliberately ambiguous combinations of biological imagery reflect
the perfect integration of form and function found in the natural
world. Through an intuitive process, I allow these elements
to respond to one another, creating “hybrid” forms
with movement and fluidity.
Porcelain is an ideal medium for my work because its white luminescence
showcases rich surfaces and curvilinear components. The
strength and responsiveness of this clay also enables me to achieve
whimsical and delicate sculptural elements.
Hidden building techniques allow my sculptures to exist in a
space of seamless illusion where they appear “born” rather
than “made.” Inspired by the mysteries of nature,
pieces deliver an animated and fantastical view of our biological
surroundings. I invite my audience to draw upon their experience
and imagination, and to discover a unique reality for each piece.
