“Making ceramics and drawings is like a process of meditation for me. Working with stoneware clay and ceramic oxides, I build and collage with coils and slabs of clay, the form is painted and altered; the work may be fired a number of times during this process until the shape and surface are right.
A central theme for me is the rhythm of the natural world and its action on man-made elements in our surroundings. Recent forms appear weathered and bleached-out, the textures referring to metal, stone and corrosion - the sculptures are characterized by their monumentality and painterly surfaces. I see the vessel not only as a container for material but also as a space for thought and memory.”
