My Studio Place
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 Over time my original emphasis on function has gradually been replaced by an expression of form.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

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
