The minimal geometric forms of three dimensional vessels are like stopped objects with full potential energy to transform. I transform these by extending or removing the basic components of three dimensional objects such as dots, lines, surfaces, etc.; these elements then become both internal and external adornments of the object. The decorative items interact with each other to convert into novel three dimensional object with two dimensional qualities. Additional methods including using various clay, subtle color differences and texture, and modification of casts are all sculptural methods signifying a new beginning of conversion in ceramics art.” (Artist Statement)
