Many of my sculptures represent two forms pulling away from, or compressing against, each other. They act as metaphors for human relationships that are based on impending separation or forced attachment. Many people find the development of relationships to be a source of anxiety, and I attempt to express this interactive struggle through the physical movement of the clay.

When I began to understand the Japanese concept of “Danshari” (The art of decluttering), I learned to focus on simplifying both the result and the process of my craft and life. As you are born, you are the purest. As you die, you are the simplest.
