I make ceramic sculpture and pottery because it feels good, it let's me put a lasting mark in time and it's simply in my blood. Being born into a family of ceramic artists, I just kind of fell into it. The pieces I make are predominantly dictated by my current mood and nonsensical delusions that go through my head on a daily basis. Artists are like valves in which ideas flow. We process what we see and regurgitate it. Current events, social issues, the environment, history, art, love, sex, tenderness, color, texture, form, mood and everything we know and experience in life is chewed up and spit out. At times I have no clue where the meaning lies. Other times the ideas have deep personal value. People will often tell me what a particular piece means to them and I figure that's part of the process. Narrative work needs to let the viewer come to conclusions on their own and at times I've learned something about myself by what others see in the sculptures. As an artist in a long line of clay people before me, I just have to keep making work that feels good and hope it gives something to the viewer to think about.
