Statement:

Red clay is more fun and harder to mess up. I handbuild to escape round pots, yet still make round pots. I find the most beauty and joy in the slightly absurd and faintly ridiculous. I believe that more is more. High and low culture are best mixed. It takes practice to make it look like you’re not trying. Patterns are my language. I pine for the desert and hoard old fabric. Making art is work and I like it that way. Rules help me think less and be more free. Sometimes it’s all about aesthetics. It doesn’t matter if you don’t get my jokes. My work is deadly serious, and I take it seriously.
