The constant availability of modern technology encourages society to resist moments of meditation. In hopes of creating a shift in this interaction, I am focusing on functional pottery and giving them glory. I am exploring various ways of incorporating my androgyny, searching for a balance of hard and soft, geometric and organic. The journey of finding this balance is a reflection of my struggles with gender and self-image, embodying masculine and feminine energy searching for existence of both without abundance of one. I find the linear quality of mid-century modern aesthetic to be a compliment to the organic, feminine energy I'm channeling. The childhood memories attached to this aesthetic are something I treasure, reminding me of times where we were together and so present. I am looking to encourage this presence through my functional work, to invite community and conversation into a home space.
