“My past training in graphic design and cinema informs my ceramic artwork. Maya Angelou said: ‘I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’ During my creative process, I pose myself questions such as: ‘What if my ceramic work, like a movie’s character, had a personality? How can their personalities transpire and be perceived by the viewer? How can I make people feel emotions through my work?’ I seek answers to these questions by exploring the synergy of forms, surface designs, materials, and atmospheric firings.
Influenced by my family’s history of refugees, and by the witnessing of people around the world being displaced even today, I am compelled to create ceramic work in which I explore themes of displacement, survival, erosion, growth, and transformation.”
