Website Up! (and other new happenings)

First! I finally had time last week to sit for a few days and work on my new website.
Work, moving and planning for my San Diego trip have been dominating my life recently so getting some free time for myself was a breath of fresh air. Enjoy!

Secondly, My Etsy Store is up and running again. I stocked it with a bunch of new work that I've been developing.

Lastly but surely not least, I got published in an online design magazine called Nesting Newbies. I looked through the mag and there are so many talented designers and artists highlighted in it. I am honored to be apart of it! Take a look.
Go to page 134-135 and you will see my bowl hanging out on the chair.
Pamela Hall is the designer that included it in her home. She does great work.

Sneek Peek

New Peices for Spring/Summer Comming Soon

Tuesday, April 27, 2010


I've been trying out silica sand. I love the sugar quality. This is just the beginning. I think I'm going to slow down on the massive sculptural peices and work primarly on function. I felt like I needed to get this urge to "remove function" out for a bit and now I'm ready to get back to making pots!

Sand is just another texture. Something to grasp on to. Literally. :)

Artist Statement

The vessel’s purpose is to contain. We use the vessel to hold our mundane collection of things; our clutter. Throwing our car keys into a dish when we get home, saving our pocket change in a jar or gathering all of the pens and keeping them in that one tall cup. These rituals in one’s life are what I’m investigating. What if the vessel is already full? Can one still contain?
My work is an exploration of accumulation and the vessel that surrounds it. In a blink of an eye clutter can easily multiply and overpower its home. The vessel deforms to accommodate the clutters needs; bending, twisting, trying to conform for its contents. It becomes a struggle for control. A struggle to contain the chaos of one’s assortment of inadequate objects that is gathered in life. Does the vessel ever succeed in this struggle? We always seem to be in need of another container.
