'Seduction may not be the purest of motives, but that is what I want from my work. I want the curves and slopes of my vessels to pull you softly into a moment of silent contemplation. As time disappears, I want to surround you with a sense of calm. I want you to see beauty emerging from the delicate balance of opposites - the intentional and the random, the rough and the smooth, the linear and the organic, the old and the new. I want to create work that is honest and pure. I want to express the quiet complexity that resides behind a simple facade. I want you to feel a sense of awakening as you discover that the more you look, the more you see.'
