3rd Place recipient

I am a ceramic artist that makes sculptures and installations. My work explores the relationship between objects, spaces and people. I believe that when objects inhabit a space the reading of both object and place changes meaning. In my work, objects are not static. Instead they seek to build on the experience of a place by guiding the audience’s interaction with the space through the reading of the sculptures.
