My childhood was spent sorting through piles of scrap home-remodel material and my father's eccentric junk collection in my backyard. Likely because of this, I am attracted to working with textures, resources, and supplies typically found at construction sites. Trained as a ceramicist, I am also drawn to substances pulled directly from the earth. Throughout my work, I continually return to clay for its constructive and performative applications.
Much of my sculpture relies on haptic experience. These moments of interaction can activate memory or create new associations between objects, function, and the body. I am fascinated by the poetics of both processed and raw material derived from their globally implicated histories and their personal biographies.
