Artist's Statement: Inspirations for my designs come from a love of geometry, modern architecture and farm machinery commonly seen while growing up in rural southeast Kansas.
3D-CAD software enables me to accurately visualize objects during the design phase of my process. Repeated production and reconfiguration of modular elements allows me to create and continually refine similar yet unique objects.
My vessels are soda fired to emphasize the edges, planes and corners. This firing process allows me to manipulate the kiln atmosphere during the firing to achieve varied results, adding to the uniqueness of each individual work.
