In developing my asymmetrical work, I am guided by the interaction of volume and line during the making of each piece. 

My irregular, apparently random, coil-built constructions result from variances introduced at the base of each vessel during the initial phase of my hand-building process. From these slight modifications in the base upon which I coil-build each vessel, a uniquely organic – yet “predetermined” – shape emerges.  

As my construction begins to close in along the top of each vessel, I introduce a more deliberate edge or line in finishing the piece. The tension and dialogue this edge creates between line and volume in each piece tells a story.  

My surface treatment of each pot aims to highlight and complement the work’s narrative contour.
