Excuse the blurry photo. You just can't capture those moves on film. Or a phone.
AFTER busting out some serious moves to 90's hip hop while rocking 2017 hip hair trend the high pony, I get to business in the scrappy, Kerby Alley Studios in industrial N. Portland, along side 4 other multi-media artists who aren't afraid of a little old alley at midnight on a Tuesday.
I am a maker of armies. A lover of old things made new. A workaholic who doesn't know how to be anything else.
Using several techniques, I transform ordinary things into special moments. With an exacto knife, a wheel thrown bowl becomes a cheeky vessel for fruit. A vintage whisky bottle, block of wood or lightbulb is transformed into a stunning vase, just by using a little plaster and slip.
Surface is just as important to me as the piece itself. Color inspires me. I spend hours upon hours tweaking my handmade glazes to create the perfect hue I have in my head. Then it's just play, play, play.
