I make in clay because it can be whatever you tell it to be. Our hands were our first tools, an idea that clay preserves. From ancient civilizations to the most technologically advanced industries, humans have always been making objects and telling clay what to do.
My current work is meant to pay homage to clay and all of its applications. I focus on industrial and scientific objects, as they were made by hand before the onset of mass-production. This series of sculptures was made to highlight materiality, and celebrate form for what it is. The idea of this work is to reactivate the importance of handmade goods, recognizing their place both in art and industry.
Humor and lightheartedness are my way of breathing life back into disregarded objects and processes. These sculptures take on a new sense of whimsy and are repurposed to play together in space.
