My ceramic figures are meant to reflect upon our inner emotional lives. I allude to what lies beneath the surface, ironically, by the surface decoration that I use. I use these elements of nature to elevate the figures from the specific to the universal. I leave the intention purposely vague, so that each viewer will read its meaning according to his or her own experiences. In this way I hope to forge a connection between the work and the viewer, thus completing the story.
