One of my primary interests is change; particularly, transformative change.

Change is sometimes planned, fought for, and welcomed. It can also be spontaneous, inevitable, or resisted. In any change, new possibilities are created while others are precluded.

I am interested in exploring the place of change or transformation in my artwork.

In ceramics, this can be explored conceptually, structurally, or by attempting to harness the physical changes clay and glazes endure through the firing process.

I utilize edges in my work. Change is often associated with edges: we speak of turning a corner or being on the cutting-edge.

In ceramics, the edge is fragile and often sharp. The edge may cause a glaze to thin, triggering a radical change of color. It is a place difficult to control, where the unexpected often occurs.

Each series of artwork expresses a different element of transformation.
