In my art, there is a romantic quintessence of union with personal memories conflicting with the heaviness life brings. Memory and present experiences intertwine in my nostalgic representation of life through porcelaneous stoneware sculptures. I am attracted to high firing my work for the specific outcome of my art is most often uncertain; for none of the pieces end as the way they began. The physical changes the pieces take on through the firing process connects with the narrative on merging a vulnerable boundary between the fragility of mortality and the delicateness of nostalgia that objects carry. I am pursuant to convey my present cognition of a past experience. The concept of immortalizing a memory or a feeling through my art is most compelling to me.
