Artist Statement
I use porcelain and black underglaze to reference the paper and ink of a relief print paired with a technique called sgraffito, a reductive process of carving the surface of clay to create an image. This leaves a lot of texture behind and adds a tactile experience for the user. The images carved on my pottery are influenced by the environment where I currently live and I have fixed my sights on midwest birds, pollinators, and wetland creatures. I wish for my art to bring awareness to fragile ecosystems and add depth and beauty to the everyday life of domestic spaces.
