Stoneware, underglaze, stain
My work, described as figurative narrative, is inspired by my personal experiences, beliefs, and concerns, and an interest in the human experience. The intention is to create empathy or contemplation, conveying motion and emotion, through gesture, expression, and color. My use of monumental proportion and fragmentation of the figure focuses the viewer’s attention—in essence, magnifying the work and the issue it addresses.
