This body of work is informed by my love for working traditionally in both metal and ceramic mediums. Marrying two materials that are so structurally different is appealing to me, and it leads me on a journey of experimentation in both form and process.
I am often inspired by the relationship between the human psyche and artificial intelligence, Elsa Freund, Nancy Worden, Faberge’s reverence for his modern times and Hieronymus Bosch’s use of vacancy.
