For the Table
My interest in archetypal form stems from the notion that objects are extensions of identities and histories. The everyday or special experience can be reflected through the image and function of objects. Objects we covet, disposable objects, and objects that we negotiate daily or ritually are all viable. I reference iconic forms in attempt to suggest contemporary life or to evoke a quality of nostalgia.
Processes of making largely inform my work; slip casting is my primary method of production. I make my mold parts from wet clay, real and imperfect with traces of the hand and tool. My multi-part molds are interchangeable and rebuilt each time I cast, resulting in one-off pieces. With these fragile, variable molds I am challenging the values of mold-made pieces, authenticity, and reverence for purity..
