The body of work you see here is all ceramic. Each piece starts out as a common mass-produced item found in most households. I reshape these items by manipulating them and treating them with several layers of liquid porcelain. The final surface treatment for each form is completely different and determined after the first firing; there is no pre-planning. What I hope to create are individual rocks that are reflective of the unique beauty of the earth. I take this organic approach to creating because I find it is the best way to achieve my interpretation of interesting and wonderful earth specimens. I delight in playing with the dichotomy of synthetic mass-production and the rich natural beauty and diversity of the earth.
