Artist Statement:

For many years Iíve been exploring the concept of self, our ways of understanding who we are and what we are about. Beliefs about the self seem pivotal to all our undertakings. More specifically, I feel our sense of self in relation to group dynamics has always played an important role in the way we interact as a society and as individuals. In my ceramic work, using variations of stacked porcelain layers as a metaphor for how our own psychology is built up, I am interested in representing the combination of our familial and cultural group dynamics and their influences on our inherent patterns of behavior and how we view our own individuality.
