This show is built from a fascination with glazes and ceramic materials. During my residency at Harvard Ceramics, I’ve been researching and testing materials and procedures to take a fresh look at how we approach contemporary clay.

There is no inside surface vs. outside surface, there is only the object and the space it contains. It’s a really beautiful process. It’s layered with the irony of an American studio artist hand-replicating a 3-d printing process; making work representative of blue and white ware....

A collection of historical and cultural significant Colombian passages. Events, myths, rituals, and people have been researched and collected to influence a body of work that comes from the absence of it being bestowed. Recreating and reliving through work allows for the reclaiming of the passages and continuing to guide as a contributor.
