Artist Statement 

I am drawn to creating objects that integrate my sense of free-form design, my engineering background, and the challenges of getting clay slabs to cooperate with what I want them to do or how I want them to be. I love the problem solving required in hand building objects. 
I especially like creating a piece with many parts with minimal structural support and the challenge of successfully birthing it through its first firing. I'm always learning as I try a new concept; sometimes initially failing, tweaking the design or the building process, and then with great joy succeeding. 
If my art causes an admiring viewer to wonder about its creation process, I'm more than pleased.
