My work explores the tension between acts of labor and collapse, between precision and failure.  It is a meditation on entropy that uses architecture as a foil to examine the dichotomy of beauty and loss. I am interested in transformation, which is expressed in both destruction and growth. Much of my work involves creating complex porcelain structures that are encouraged to warp or collapse in the strain of the firing. They expose the relationship between soft and hard, the fluidity of a membrane, and the moment of intersection between these contrasting elements.  Ultimately they are a metaphor for the human condition, paradoxically both broken and at times beautiful.
