  1. For me, art is the purest of sciences. I use the scientific method to move towards a goal which can’t be defined until it is discovered. I experiment with form, color and material until I find a pattern, and from the pattern I learn to make sense of what I’ve done.
    I was drawn to ceramics in the first place because it satisfied my love of both aesthetics and experiments. It is very exciting to work with an art form that allows the opportunity for mixing dangerous chemicals and heating everything to 2300 degrees!
