ARTIST STATEMENT
The industrial object is one interest that influences my current work. Particularly the types that have been abandoned and left to deteriorate yet now as discards have little outward value. This type of industrial object is the inspiration for the aesthetic I am working with. Since the original function or use of the object is lost, I am able to respond directly to the form as an aesthetic experience unto itself. It is this mystery of function and aesthetic that serves as the central influence, and is the impetus for the creation of my current ceramic objects.
I use the process of woodfiring to finish the work. This process dictates that an interaction happens between object and fire, with the form directing the path of the flame and the flame leaving its mark. For me this creates a dialogue between the fire and artist, which helps in creating a bridge between order and chaos.
