Using the techniques of coiling, I allow myself the freedom to arrange the elements within a composition to put my aesthetic rather than functional concerns first. Pressing with fingers to make the thickness consistent is a time-consuming process, which made me question its usefulness. However, I learned through this process how to work slowly and see the object as a whole, not in parts.
The relationship of form to surface, the relationship of one object to another, and the relationship of the viewer to the installation. I’ve spent a lot of effort satisfying these concepts.
