VESSELS OF COMMUNICATION
I have recently been working in the 3D printing world, developing a new porcelain-like ceramic material with MIT engineer Stuart Uram. The product was launched by the startup company Shapeways in 2015. I use the new material to create artwork using 3D printed molds. My first series is this new direction is a collection of ceramic books.
LARGE SCALE CERAMIC SCULPTURE
The scale of these pieces can reach up to 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide. They are made entirely of ceramics, using a peg and hole system of construction. I am able to use separate, interchangeable parts to create a variety of sculptures. Many of the sculptures are made on rocking bases, which allow them to tilt and rock when pushed. They have been exhibited and collected by museums throughout the U.S. and internationally.
POTTERY AND HAND-BUILT CERAMICS
I have taught advanced throwing, hand-building, and glaze techniques for more than 20 years in a variety of academic and studio settings. I enjoy making all types of ceramic work, from functional vessels to other forms of thrown and hand-built art.
