This is pottery that celebrates and represents a range of landscapes, environments, and experiences that I have come to know and hold dear for myself since my child and young adulthood. From memories of spending spring and summer at the edges of my grandmother's pond and admiring my mother's lilacs, to what it felt like picking dandelions or wild blackberries to fill wicker baskets, I've created abstract and colorful depictions of these personal experiences on and within the surface and the form of each functional pottery piece in my senior thesis exhibition. This work offers a joyful and engaging view into the deep connection I hold with my unique childhood in rural Vermont

Artist Statement:

My earthenware ceramic pottery is made with fluidity and an interest in intuitive building and surfacing. I like to explore throwing and altering as well as coil and slab building within my studio work, as my intentions are to create energetic and expressive pieces that are able to
communicate my personal connections with my environments and experiences.
Much of my recent work has been inspired by my deep rooted connection to the land and landscapes of my childhood. My memories may be weakened and abstracted as I age, but these
materialized reflections of my mind’s eye view of the joyful and beautiful places that I know carry their own powerful expression and create engaging surfaces on all my forms.
