Growth Series

  • The world is full of the grotesque and beautiful.
    The cycle of decay that organisms go through from death to rebirth is inspiring and in nature this cycle occurs on large and small scales. I am interested in finding these small instances in fungi growths and combining them with the decay of memories and, in particular, toys. I use ceramics to expand on the idea of memory and how it alters and fragments what we know to be true. Each piece is hand sculpted and fired multiple times to mimic the multiple layers of texture, color and feeling the objects can hold for a viewer.
