Brian Eno advised that we should "stop thinking about art works as objects, and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences.” My ceramic inplements evoke the pleasures of well-constructed tools; using them transcends the task at hand. The beauty of carefully made objects reminds us that many of life’s satisfactions are in the doing. Tools speak to the stories of discovery and challenge of the maker and the user. My work explores the relationship between tools and the people who make and use them. Tools influence civilization but they also reflect it. In our digital society we need new tools to help us sort things out. I want there to be ambiguity about the origin and purpose of my implements. When so much is virtual, I remind people of the tangible enjoyment of actual objects and experiences.
