        “As a maker, I find indulgence through the authentication of household ceramic wares. As a means to achieve satisfaction, the practice of making these forms can be repetitive with each successful encounter resulting in a better understanding of the process.

        Calm thoughts of simplicity and volume engulf my practice. Routinely clarifying constraints associated with these key values enables me as a maker to further my practice, through engagement of various forms I am able to familiarize with these valued characteristics.”
