My studio practice is varied. I have established a framework of categories, which I have developed over time and continually revisit. I have been working almost exclusively with porcelain for almost 20 years.
In 2018, I felt a need for change and exploration, searching for a looser approach using color. I participated in a workshop with Debra Fritts to learn more about working with red clay, and layering surface treatments. Narrative research based sculpture has always appealed to me. "Lost and Found" was born during this workshop and I have wanted to get back to working in this manner ever since.
Before the pandemic, I had planned to explore this method of working, which was to be enhanced further by a residency at Buffalo Creek Arts Center in Nevada for July 2020. The residency has been postponed until next July and now this is my Pandemic Project.
