"Stemming from the most prehistoric of levels, man as maker has an inherent need to be involved in a tactile experience. It is this primal need to create and manipulate material that impels me to work within my chosen medium. As my work is used, it is my hope that the user will be pulled from their fast paced life and appreciate a moment of reflection."
"My investigation in porcelain has produced forms that allude to organic and biological forms; vibrant colors penetrate through somber tones. Flesh like undulations roll over and conceal hidden parts, asking for further examination. Forms that were once soft and inviting have now transformed into tactile, biomorphic pots that conceivably 'bite back'." -Sean Larson.
