I do not make functional pots, but rather use the vessel as a subject to give form and meaning to an expression. The content of a vessel is literally the space within it- a vessel defines emptiness as a presence. Idea becomes meaning. A large part of the reason for making is to see things that I have never seen before, to build something that I cannot fully understand or explain. I am full of questions. I search for the content of a vessel. Risk, surprise; – a search to find objects that are truthful and meaningful.
