"I collect artifacts of the people, places, and events that hold my roots. My inspiration began with the experience of looking through boxes of unsorted ancestral photographs in my grandmother's attic. I would like people to have this same sense of discovery and time as they use my pieces. The intimacy of ceramic wares readily offer a platform from which to examine how we retain memories and recreate stories from their fragments. This idea of containing captured moments is expressed through cropped imagery, historical patterning and the tactile surface."
