“Currently I am working on refining my pots, searching for beautiful proportions in both form and glaze application. I am also exploring the idea of function in ceramics. People view art differently depending on context. Simply hanging a functional pot on the wall can change the viewer’s perceptions of its “function”. I believe these small jolts to our thought patterns are an important part of the role art plays in society”.
