Artist's Statement: I employ the ideas of the Gestaltist to arrange and rearrange the vocabulary of formal elements I have developed over the years. I view my forms and textures as a bit of a scrabble game, arrangement and order create meaning, the possibilities are infinite. The only trick to the game is spellng out the concept of utility. Once this is achieved I use the object for experimentation in the finished surface through firing. My work is always a record of where I'm at in time and an expression of living life as an adventure!
