Exhibition Statement

The content of my work is synonymous with the setting in which it is made. By investigating the natural clay deposits, mineral resources, and geological expressions inherent to specific regions, I seek to create work which combines the physiological substance and emotional characteristics of place to form an expression of its terroir. As a result, each body of work conveys a historical record of my surroundings as well as a reflection of my identity as being rooted in that geographical location.

Spanning a period of three years, the works in this exhibition document an approach to making that follows my transition from Northern California to Minnesota. Collectively, they present a material record of my adaptations to new clay resources and adjustment to the expressions found in new landscapes. On a psychological level, they portray the progression of identity associated with a shifting sense of belonging to geographical place.
