A continued lifelong exploration of shape and revelation, vessels are beautifully crafted and then cut to reveal the interior. Each shape that comes from the cut is uniquely its own and is determined by the interior space of the piece. Expanding the work from being purely a vessel into a sculpture. These pieces are scorched by the ash in a fire. Frustration, tears, and the rage of a year with no control put into a fire and burned away. The vividness of their scorch marks are so emotional and yet so beautiful. The work envelopes a dichotomy of full control over the making of the vessels and the loss of control in their firing.
