Clay has a particularly receptive memory and can record each movement and change, just as people can recall their own personal history. This naturally responsive quality allows the opportunity to create a narration within each piece of work that is beyond surface decoration and form. Combining memory with the practice of making has developed into a methodology that reaches beyond the studio. The goal is to create artwork that encourages growth and allows the viewer to step into a transformative ethos.
