My pottery is adorned with lines that explore the space between the concrete and the abstract. These designs are improvised and play off how our brains seek to make order out of chaos. I tend to think of my designs like shadows cast by some unknown object. Familiar but foreign. I have no interest in directly referencing the real world, but I do like to allude to it. It's more poetic that way. I’m fond of machinery and technology, so many of my designs exemplify aspects of those precise objects.
