Artist Statement

Many objects in our everyday lives are influenced by ancient Grecian vessels but it is in my opinion that this fact remains unnoticed by most people. To address this I build large Grecian vessels that are then carved away leaving only the skeleton of the structure to represent this disappearing history. While these objects are remembered by historians, I feel it is important for everyone to see these connections. This is my way of trying to reconnect modern day society with ancient history. I am personally able to connect to ancient Grecian history by the process in which I make these carved vessels. By using red clay and creating very specific Grecian vessel forms, I am able to immerse myself in these ancient traditions and remember where these objects came from.
