In my work I look to combine pottery’s historical concept of functionality with contemporary consumerism and vice to express and advocate the value of slower living styles and consumer sustainability in the home.
Abstract narratives are rendered using naive line-work, sensory patches of varying texture, and blatant contrast. I create diversely functional objects while remaining rooted in modern design culture; imagery relative to D.I.Y. subcultures, surrealist theory, and the Slow-Food movement.
The narratives presented weave together commonplace qualms and our everyday anxieties with objects and scenarios we face as a consequence of human interaction. Failures, regrets, and other unsettling feelings are met with tongue-in-cheek humour to make light of our existence as part of the modern human condition.
