Artist Statement

My interactive pieces function both as sculpture as well as props for social interaction. Through participation, the viewer’s relationship to the work changes. You are not generally encouraged to approach fine art with the same candor that you would approach exercise equipment. A personal, unassuming relationship with my work is encouraged. I feel that this is the most direct way my background in functional ceramics has influenced me. Its tactile nature instilled in me a belief that there is a truth and honesty to objects we can approach and understand in a physical way.
