The search to find a balance between the decorated surface and the pot’s form is a puzzle, with an elusive solution, that sustains my interest. I’m prompted to design the surface spontaneously; to map my experiences and draw from my inspirations.
My work forms a bridge between two-dimensional media and the sculptural aspects of pots. An etched line, a calligraphic brushstroke and the movement and pattern of a written language influence the surface. Growth and motion are represented by universal images of birds and plants.
I like the idea that a unique intimacy can be intrinsically produced and remain in a potentially ordinary object. Through creating pots, I’m able to be a part of this relationship by connecting with another’s experience and imagination.
