01 my story
My ceramics are the purest expression of how I live my life. I use everything I see, touch and taste as inspiration. In their playful and tactile qualities, my pieces reflect my natural appetite for freedom and connection to the present moment. As a professional pastry chef, trained and certified by the FCI in New York City,
I feel a strong connection between making pastry and shaping clay.
Both are naturally similar and endlessly satisfying processes.
I draw deep pleasure from watching people’s unabashed reactions to my pieces. My floating balloons-in varying sizes, colors and levels of inflatedness-seem to trigger positive childhood memories. I’ve come to realize they have the potential to capture a person’s fleeting, happy memory and render it timeless.
I travel a lot, I visit galleries and museums,
I wander down streets, I cook and bake and post a lot about that,
I explore and I share what I find-be it real life objects, new flavors, and anything made with authenticity and heart.
