Artist Statement

My work challenges the conventions and expectations surrounding everyday objects. Our relationship to tools and tchotchkes has a lasting effect on our identity and worldview. My redesigns of traditional ceramic vessels cause them to be viewed, and used, in new ways. Through the combination and re-contextualization of these forms, I ask viewers to rethink schemas of sex vs. gender, the body, and the social and political hierarchies behind accepted paradigms.
