I carefully form and accumulate multiples, finding comfort in the plenty. Using the multiples to build quickly and directly, I intend to use clay sympathetically and to expose its raw and malleable qualities. I use and misuse the visual language of pottery, manipulating structure and abstracting the familiar. Masses of earthenware adjust to these transgressions, making compromises that reflect the body’s systems of counterbalances. In this reflection of movement, proportion, and scale these compositions become bodies that enact similar processes to my own. Losing fleshy resiliency the soft vegetal abundance dries and becomes brittle. These objects are vehicles by which I come to understand myself.
