My pieces strive to express the beauty that comes from imperfect symmetry found in the natural world. For example, the beauty that comes about because humans are not geometrically perfect, fascinates me.
I conceive my ceramics as peaceful and harmonious objects, infused with my values, my roots, my dreams and the history and places that I had lived in and visit.
