Description/

Recently, I have devoted my efforts in the studio to focusing on outrageous small-scale sculptures influenced by my love for coffee mugs. Mugs are about as ubiquitous as it can get in the world of ceramics and are usually one of the items pottery connoisseurs begin to collect when they seek out work to collect. The mug fascinates me because it is not only an iconic form of “pottery,” but also serves as a platform from which its implied function can be distorted and manipulated with the rearrangement of its architectural parts. Generally speaking, a mug has a few primary components: the negative space to hold liquids, a handle to help direct the user to grip the object in a particular way, and – in some cases – a saucer to help keep the heat and moisture off surfaces on which it is placed. Historically, the saucer also played a role by indicating a higher status of both object and user. These three components offer a kaleidoscope of options and arrangements when I begin to compose my heavily abstracted forms.
