I make functional, whimsical home goods, meant for everyday use. My work is playful and fun, while fulfilling the needs of domestic life, for example: sparkly water tumblers, planters that give you lip, or bowls with chains. The sources for surface treatments that I reference include the desert landscape, body ornamentation, and historical textiles. I distill the shapes and colors from my sources into a personal taxonomy of symbols – perhaps drawing the lobes of a cactus into the form of a basket, or the dot patterns found in traditional tattooing into a glaze treatment. My impulse is always to add more – more context, more layers, more color, more texture, and more pattern. I strive to balance the tension between excess and restraint with a blend of wit and wildness with approachability and decorum.
