Artist's Statement: I try to show that my work is a combination of man and material where both the person making the object and the material have equal significance. I exaggerate dents and imperfections when appropriate to the construction process, as in throwing and handbuilding. Lately I have been adding granite and decomposed granite to bleed out and further activate the surface of my pieces.

My work is influenced by my family, the culture I live in, the machine age, the urban environment, the media and fad and fashion.
