Art has always been a place in which I can express myself visually instead of verbally. Through my concentration I hope to express myself through functionally pottery. I believe that there is beauty in the little things, such as having coffee out of a handmade mug. I want people to be able to experience my art not just look at it. While I appreciate sculpture, i believe being able to use my artwork everyday takes it to another level. When eating or drinking out of pottery that I have created it makes the mundane act of eating more exciting. When someone uses my pottery I hope that it brightens their day, and prompts them to appreciate the little things in life. Through my work I hope to express the value of enjoying every little moment.
