"The idea of taking from one object and connecting it to another through the dissection of parts and pieces is a foundation of my recent work in ceramic sculpture. Combined with this is my interest in the relation of whole forms to that of fragments. Exploration in the studio is and on-going visual investigation of man-made and natural objects. Usually these consist of small things; ordinary in many ways, but possessing and odd quirkiness that pulls me to them. In some cases I do not know the objects particular purpose, function or where it may have originated. I feel this lack of knowledge allows me to see the object in a clearer light."
