Abstract

The work in Growthlines is a collection of ceramic objects that are characterized by floral pattern and their potential for use. I make ceramic work that is functional and designed to be in the home. I think that the way something looks is an integral part of function and I seek to make objects that function well. The surface of my pottery is rich with images of flowers and I hope that the surface both draws in the user and highlights flowers and how important they are for the preservation of the natural world. My work functions as a surrogate for the things I value but sometimes lack: directness, connectivity, social acuity. I am invested in making ceramics that correct some of these faults and provide an avenue to make connections by creating work that reveals myself.
