I strive to bring joy into people’s everyday lives through my ceramics. Creating objects with clay brings me the greatest happiness and I hope to make this happiness evident in my work. Inspired by organic forms and nature I constantly explore with color and materiality to share how I see the world around me.
Creating functional pieces from lumps of clay is magical. Whether it be throwing on the wheel, coil-pinching, or slap building I take inspiration from my nature bound childhood memories as well as the endless range of clay bodies that exist. I transfer those images onto the surfaces by illustrating and hand painting. It flutters my heart to see each piece come together and I can only hope it does the same for others!
Market events are incredibly special, being able to see people interacting with my work and meeting other creatives is always a great boost of inspiration and motivation.
