I am drawn to clay both for its rich history and longevity. Some of the earliest forms of written communication can be found pressed into the surfaces of ancient clay tablets. These objects have survived for centuries and will probably continue to outlast the digital information we collect today.
On the surfaces of my clay pieces, I layer text and imagery using various printmaking techniques, juxtaposing different communication methodologies, which in proximity, are often anachronistic. Through this dialogue I explore the humor, nostalgia and amazement inherent in living in the midst of a technological revolution. While recognizing the technological milestones of the past, I create a ceramic “record” of my own experience in the Information Age.
