I am a ceramic artist exploring the repetition of form through slip-casting. I cast the mundane objects that populate our lives without a great deal of thought; objects which are considered to be useful but not beautiful, and which are often disposable. My process is transformative of these ‘found’ objects. By rendering them into porcelain, a prized material, these otherwise ephemeral items are transmuted into objects of beauty and permanence far removed from their original condition. The resulting pieces subtly question our relationship with those objects which are comfortably familiar; used and touched every day, but rarely considered.
