Artist's Statement: I Think of Blue Flowers I create ceramic sculptures that are swelled, carved, and painted meticulously at each stage. I extract and reconstruct elements of functional domestic forms, at one time referencing, at another abstracting their familiar roles within our culture. My investigation encompasses not only the aesthetic qualities of familiar objects, but also their symbolic functions within our lives. I investigate where these two realms overlap and what happens when the decorative aspect becomes the function.
