In order to make sense of my life and experiences, I use my hands to make things about the topics that constantly whirl about in my mind. I use clay because of its direct connection to the earth, to explore topics of human life, death, the afterlife, and spirituality.
My current body of work specifically speaks to the idea of reactivating the spirit within each of us. I believe that our society needs a vital shift of focus from outwardly, temporal concerns towards the inner self. The work is a series of sculptures and vessels intended to function as meditation centers. They are meant to bring the viewer to a mental space of self-reflection and awareness.
