Pieces of the Dream Ceramics

“I have always been willing to bet on myself...to stand on what I am and can do even when the world isn't much with me.” - Georgia O’Keeffe

I think this quote really best describes the deeply personal and private connection that I feel in terms of my ceramic explorations. I tend to stray from popular forms or trends. When I have a strong conviction of the way I want to approach something there is little room for a detour. I find inspiration from global primitivism as well as a group of select people from a variety of the arts. My forms often combine aspects of various cultures making one feel a sense of familiarity as well as a vagueness of identity.
