“I love to tell stories with clay because it allows me to connect people to one another, and helps explain who we are. My goal is to express common threads of the human experience by using the figure, imagery and gesture as powerful narrative tools. By working with a material as simple as clay to create something as complex as a human, I can roll, stretch, attach, incise, alter the shape, glaze and inject some color until life emerges and we see part of ourselves in the pieces that look back at us.”
