ARTIST STATEMENT

ARTIST BIO

Creating a simple coffee mug comes from my desire to use something everyday that strikes up an interesting conversation with me. Making pots allows me to be a formalist who loves the symbolic results of shape, color and texture combinations. I can be an engineer who develops a refreshing approach to something we have seen or used before. I have the freedom to design work that will compliment an environment. With these attributes, I try to raise the importance of a mug from mundane to meaningful.
