Shapes and how they are the basis of every object in the world fascinate me. More specifically, joining different shapes together to make a larger abstract shape is the basis for my work. I work with clay because of its amazing plasticity and ability to be manipulated into any object in order to create a complex work of abstraction. My work reflects a lot of inner emotion and I hope to arouse some sort of similar emotion within viewers. Inspired by Surrealism, my work extends beyond anything logical and encourages viewers to examine the relationship between the object, title, and what one perceives the object to be. What one sees is extraordinarily different from what actually is.
