I once had a visitor tell me that my work looked like it spoke a secret code. I was intrigued and tried to say that I was speaking the language of pottery. My pottery dialect is a mix of historical knowledge, material sense, experience of the modern world, experiments with dreams and a desire to eloquently simplify.
"Studio craftspeople often find themselves working at an intricate intersection of conceptual content, material skill and an appreciation for ambiguity. Which is why this seems to be the time for those engaged with craft to show how their work is, in fact, a process of facing, rather than avoiding, complexity." --The Cult of Simplicity, Akiko Busch
