I sculpt clay using a fettling knife to find the perfect collaboration between planes, lines, and colors to present the complexity of life. Planes (our paradigms) Lines (our direction of movements) and Color (our reaction to the world) define us in so many ways and shape us both physically and emotionally. I manipulate clay to form a physical structure.
Through the process of adding volume, positive or subtracting clay, negative, creates the overall character and emotional life of the figure. Much in the same way that negative and positive interactions in life create the unique shape of who we are. It is within that unique and complex shape that we find beauty.
