The foundation of my practice seeks to investigate the tactility of objects through the materials of porcelain, silver and gold. I am driven to create work that provokes empathic feedback with an individual. This is done partly by creating objects that become ritualistic in their use, objects that are meant to be handled, to be worn. I am exploring ways to engage the “viewer” through the senses of touch and sound, and my aim is to pique their interest through making ambiguous sculptural works that encompass duality both in conceptual constructs and function.
