My works stem from a love and fascination with the natural world, particularly the self-similar patterns known as fractals. Through ceramic sculpture I explore the ubiquitous nature and similar appearance fractals share throughout nature.The patterns of choppy water resembles those of mountains as well as meting ice. A river system branches in the same way as the branching patterns of our nervous system and lungs. Fractals are the patterns by which the universe has organized itself. Noticing them fills me with a profound feeling of interconnection with nature in all it’s facets and forms. In making works inspired from this theme, I hope to instill the same sense of awe and wonder in my viewer. I will be successful when my audience then notices these patterns all around them, and feels they are connected to something greater than themselves.
