I choose materials that best communicate a concept or an experience that is personal to me. When working in clay, I use hand building as well as wheel throwing techniques. I might choose the seductive plasticity of porcelain with its vitreous translucency or the earthy grounded weight of a grogged stoneware. In Summer Sea shore, discovery of jellyfish stranded on beaches leads to an exploration of motion, translucency and vulnerability.
