Torn Bits Conjoin Geographies
Through conjoined historic pots torn and layered bit-by-bit, I interweave form, content, and materiality. I envision the ubiquitous nature of clay across era, investigate bridging cultural forms, contemplate replication as the shared gesture of hand and machine, and conjure convergence. My work occupies the struggle at the precipice where oppositional elements meet.
