I make sculptural pieces from unglazed porcelain clay. My hope is that my work communicates a sense of energy through a combination of regular and irregular/fractal geometry from natural forms. I am interested in the history of the use of regular geometry in the aesthetics of classical Western art, in particular, the creation of harmonious form by the use of a repeated proportion. The patterns and forms can be endlessly repeated as the pattern is replicated in the form and the form can become part of a larger pattern.
