My sculptures serve as a way to explore the impermanence and persistence of life. My fragile sculptures of bare red clay will not survive without the attention of people around them, but they are made of a material that lasts thousands of years. I build structures of long, thin ceramic antennas, so sensitive that they bend and sway at the slightest touch. The sculptures reach into space, they define and occupy space through their form and also through their fragility. They are physically precarious, a tangible reminder of impermanence, but if cared for they could remain for generations.
