In my own history, the kitchen has always been the hub and heart of home. It is the domain of mothers and grandmothers, a place of gathering, offering and warmth. My work references tools of nourishment found in the kitchen as a metaphor for shared experience. By utilizing the bowl form, Objects of Connection: Together reflects my desire to bridge divides and honor relationship.

Finding the capacity for interconnection requires both intention and care, and so I engage in meticulous repetitive acts of making while I think about mending and uniting. Through incremental change I build a space where differences merge into something in-between. It is in this place of interaction that we can find possibility, connection and even belonging.
