I am an artist mainly working in the medium of ceramics, creating biomorphic worlds, which evoke the sense of living. I create biomorphic expressionistic forms using low fire stoneware. The forms represent new worlds that range from a cellular level to a macroscopic planetary scale. The fabricated ecosystems are a representation of my perceptions and experiences of life familiar to Earth and yet an entirely new place. As an abstract reflection of biological forms within alternating scales, my work focuses on dualities present in life and utilizes comparisons of attraction and repulsion.Read More
