Statement

The clay forms are personal and distinct to each individual work. They relate to a specific geological metaphor while also acting as a vehicle for self-expression. For each piece, orientation varies according to their independently desired mood. I create this mood through closely observing and then paralleling both the emotion wanting to be expressed as well as the logistics of the geological metaphor. It is not just the colossal or just the private that I want read in these pieces. It is the profound experience of their dichotomy that I give my viewer.
