The path of self discovery and exploration of expressing emotion through clay led me to the series, “Holes”. These coiled pieces, hand built upside down, are meant to draw the viewer in as the coils spiral deeper and deeper into the form. Whether hidden within a pedestal to exaggerate its unforeseen depth, disguised in another vessel to create a false sense of wholeness, or exposed and vulnerable, hanging on the wall, each ‘hole’ has been smoothed over on the outside to conceal the whorl of emptiness held within.
