Artist Statement

My current work consists of making tea wares. Integral to this practice, is engaging in daily tea sessions utilizing varied tea vessels. Exploring these dynamics have helped to hone my skill as a ceramicist through analyzing the balance, weight, aesthetics, form, clay body, glaze, and function of each piece.

 

Vital to deepening my understanding of tea and tea wares is teaching virtual tea education workshops, and classes that explore writing/journaling with guided somatics with tea for personal development. This social tea practice has provided a rewarding way to explore creating a space for thoughtfully engaging in meaningful dialogs with communities and cultures from all over the world.
