Porcelain Sculpture

 

"Through the intricate processes of creating porcelain sculpture, I conceptualize experience that is encapsulated in the earth. Excavating 18,000 years of ceramics history, which contains the worlds cultural heritage, informs my practice and links the Late Paleolithic with the contemporary era. This dialog between the personal and the universal connects questions of existence & equality, psychology & evolution, the fragment & totality, and helps contextualize the effects of advanced industrialization on human development.  It has lead me to re-imagine the human story as a 3D collage made of porcelain clay, describing a journey of transformation."
