"My work expands with movement and fluidity and how these two interact with on another. Choosing to fire my work in a wood kiln sets each piece up for a surface that is unpredictable. This process allows the piece to express itself within the elements of the fire. The failure is only obtainable when you are pushing a new direction, allowing your self to be free with so called expectations." - Artist Statement
