Artist Statement: This body of work is a reflection of my past experience as an individual and as an artist. This piece is a symbol of the cyclical laws of the universe and the natural world. It is a representation of the undulating path of highs and lows that we all walk down in time. A symbol of our struggle to find balance between hard work and relaxation as well as overcoming all the positive and negative events we encounter. This signifies the importance of progressing naturally in all aspects of life, to gradually and thoroughly grow and develop what is instinctive to us as humans until the time is right to shift the tides into another realm of consciousness. It is an evolution and abstraction of line, shape and form. My work in ceramics is the outlet for control where I see gratifying results that are in direct correlation to the hard work and thought invested.
