I am an artist and teacher who has been living and working in the Salt Lake / Park City area since 2005. My ceramic work is a response to the world that I live in. I create functional and sculptural work that often mimics things found in the natural beauty of the outdoors such as wood, stone, and water, as well as things in the industrialized world such as metal, cement, and imposed order. I strive to make my work tactile. Something that begs to be held, studied, and used: something both simple and complex.
