Ceramics & Lighting

Varies. Approx. 10-18" High


Amidst the uncertainty of the pandemic, I began ruminating on beacons, searching for something to guide me forward through the endless times. While my work is often thoroughly planned, sketched, and honed before I enter the studio, my only goal became touching clay. I made tiny nothings that would normally become scrap. As I put them together, a lamp emerged, fashioned from the discarded remnants of clay. The discarded bits of that piece would be the catalyst for the next piece. The clay transformed into a mother dough, preserving a trace of creative DNA from every previous piece.

With no time for deliberation, I allowed the clay to take on a life of its own, shaping into a series of luminous sculptures. This project became a celebration of process, the joy of experimentation, and the surrender of preconceived notions.

Lineage also evokes another narrative, the long history of AFAB (assigned female at birth) creative tinkerers in my family. I inherited an obsession with craft, an insatiable curiosity, and a willingness to explore. This legacy instilled in me a profound resistance to the confines of expertise, embracing instead the embodiment of the eternal amateur, akin to the Fool in tarot. Like the Fool, I began embracing the unknown, oblivious to failure, at ease with discomfort, and open to the abundance risk has to offer.
