I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.
I enjoy exploring simple geometric forms defined by the intersection of straight lines. My challenge has been to capture these forms in fine craft and contemporary art pieces in a way that is generally appealing and yet evokes a personal response. Over time my original emphasis on function has gradually been replaced by an expression of form.

Although I work mostly with wood because of its universal appeal and endless variations, I will often incorporate weathered metal, anodized aluminum and found objects into my pieces as a way of complementing and drawing attention to the basic shapes.

My work to date includes open and closed vessels, conceptual pieces, and wall art.

A Glimpse of Thai Craft-Based Contemporary Art

Even though Thailand is well-known for its craft and mass-produced decorative products, its craft-based contemporary art is relatively unknown to both local and international markets. Therefore it was my great pleasure to be able to let the world see the kind of craft-based contemporary art created by Thai artists within the past few years.  In this exhibition three fields of craft-based contemporary art are presented:  ceramics (4), jewelry (3) and wood (1).  I hope you enjoy and appreciate…See More

Artist Interviews-Where are you going? Where have you been? How did you get there?

About this blog--As a recent graduate and currently in a one-year residency the question of what’s next and how to get there is always on my mind. For this blog I will be interviewing artists who have taken varying paths and pursued different careers in or out of the arts to see what they are doing now and the steps they took to get there. Special Note--I want this to be a way to share how we are all trying to figure out the paths to what’s next and where to go, not answers or things to do, but…See More

Get the book on Amazon!

What happens when professional craft artists are allowed to let loose when they get to explore their mischievous and irreverent sides? Find out in this groundbreaking book, which, for the very first time, reveals an entirely different side of serious craft. Hundreds of images and essays from all over the world allow you to gain insight into the creative minds of contemporary artists like never before.

A variety of traditional craft media are shown, such as furniture, ceramics, glass, fiber, jewelry, and metal, as well as a number of unique, nontraditional techniques. Even a bus shelter in London gets a creative make-over that is sure to make you smile!

The topics range from the playful to the serious, but the message is always most enjoyable. Humor in Craft is a treasure trove for craft aficionados and humor enthusiasts alike.

More information about the book, exhibitions, press and other hurrahs here.
