“My practice focuses on vessels and sculptures made of clay and copper including volumetric shapes with surfaces that explore communication, cognition, and energy.  Patterning includes text in Morse Code, hexagrams, and brain waves for example.  The pieces question symmetry, order, meaning and understanding.  I am enough of a modernist to believe in principles, enough of a minimalist to believe in forms, and enough of a post-modernist to recognize that these are beliefs rooted in personal histories.”
