“In my industrial design work I generally follow the concept of form follows function but in my clay work it’s reversed, form comes before function even though most of my clay work is functional. I like to embellish on the form and let the form speak to me. As a medium clay provides me that opportunity, I create vessels, objects and teapots that embody a dynamic, visual tension that expresses an intensely personal vision. The goal I set for myself is that my ceramic art work communicates a sense of feeling; whether it’s exuberance, peace or intrigue. Evoking an emotional response from the viewer means I’ve achieved success.”
