The making of functional pottery directly relates to the intimate relationship developed during the daily use of an object and it’s user within domesticity. My pottery is an exploration of my role as a woman within the idea of traditional domesticity. While creating objects that are reminiscent of antiquity, I am creating contemporary heirlooms to enhance connections within families.
My forms are inspired by nature while using birds to create a metaphor of nesting and comfort. Each object is created with the intent that it’s use will enhance its’ user’s daily life.
