Artist Statement

Clay, Earth's most common substance, often slips our notice, akin to air. Amid Elk Valley's landscapes, shaped by mountains and rivers, I find myself immersed in the tectonic saga of shaping clay. In those fleeting moments, the vastness of time echoes through the malleable masses within my hands. In Buddhism, time's inconceivable expanse is eternity. From clay's perspective, the moments it takes for form in my hands may be a transient instance. Even after my departure, the clay will likely persist, embodying the built forms. Inspired by "timeless built form," I aim to visually capture the interweaving structures humans create with clay – a blend of serendipity.
