Based in Philadelphia, my studio practice is an ongoing exploration of movement, texture and translucency through sculptural forms. My porcelain vessels blend fluidity with minimalism, belying intricate construction that beckons viewers to take a closer look. Light also transforms my work, casting shadows and setting surfaces aglow, as it illuminates my pieces.
I draw inspiration from architecture and the natural world, as well as other craft mediums. The latter influence grew out of my years helping artisans preserve their artistic heritages and find markets for their work. In that role, I was fortunate to meet craftspeople making extraordinary objects using time-honored techniques and materials, an experience that continues to inform my vessel-making and practice decades later.
