My work has always set on the edge of the irreverent and absurd. Compelled by my interest in history, civics, and comic books, I make work that is derivative of current events and pop culture. Inspired by centuries of satirical artists who have dared to call out the inequities of those in power, I follow in a rich history of artists who work to entertain and inform.
Working in the ceramic medium, my objects and images are embedded in the permanence of the medium. I am deeply drawn to ceramic’s deep and unparalleled history. The power of a utilitarian object tied with the potential for surface ornamentation allows for objects manifested in clay to carry multiple uses and functions: contain, preserve, offer, commemorate, and adorn.
