My practice revolves around the nature of reflection from a desire to achieve an understanding of self and society. Through functional form, I craft intimate objects of comfort decorated to provoke curiosity and embody the illusion of control. My work ultimately finds its place in the home and at the heart of consciousness learning to cope with time.
