Statement of Practice

My artistic practice embodies the influences, tensions and contradictions that define the postmodern world. At once, my works exhibit the paradoxical tendency to be irreverent, frivolous, and playful, as well as thoroughly engaged in critical reflection. Admittedly, my aesthetic is driven by a hedonistic engagement with visual culture, yet I remain apprehensive about the all-encompassing diversions of contemporary society. Although my works are nonfunctional, I often employ vessel forms, or otherwise allude to incongruous functionality (e.g., “wiring” of non-electronic parts). These apparent tensions may be particularly salient to my chosen field of ceramics, where discussions of “art” versus “craft” still occupy practitioners.
