My inspiration comes from modern technology and the sculptures and ceramic artifacts of the past that bridge the history of mankind to the present.
The pieces are made on a pottery wheel and combined with hand sculpting to add multiple clay parts. Depending on my idea, I choose to either throw the main body or hand sculpt. All the smaller elements are mostly made on the wheel achieving machine-like parts using straight edges instead of my hands to achieve a clean-edge look. By using these tools and techniques, I’m able to make my ideas come to life through a form of ceramics that emphasizes assembly.
