Artist Statement:

In search of holding onto familial culture, I explore memory, identity, and the fragility of life through ceramic basketry.

Weaving clay has become my method of joining thought, feeling, and memory with past, present, and future. Playing with materials delicately demonstrative of time, I explore boundaries of the vessel and its fragility in an ever changing environment. Answers to questions of love, loss, strength, and vulnerability are uncovered through my ceramic basketry as I find new ways of preserving the memories that give my life shape, meaning, and purpose.
