The Object Enthusiast

I aim to find the artful in the ordinary.

Since discovering ceramics in college, I delight in creating vessels that will become heirlooms for the modern traditionalist.

My ceramic work is characterized by earthy imperfections, a range of shapes that emerge organically, and playful, irreplicable patterns. I want my pots to be multifunctional; what one person uses as a planter another may use as a home for tiny treasures.

There’s something special in knowing that an object I’ve made – that I’ve conceived out of thin air, out of a ball of clay – will soon be something that another person lives with and chooses to keep in their home. I believe we ought to be especially selective about the objects with which we surround ourselves, as our habitat shapes and fuels our being.
