Human interaction fascinates me, our social behavior is what inspires me and this connection to our mental health as individuals. In my job, I get to interact with different people every day on a physical and mental level. I like to think of each day as a new journey. I have the opportunity to share my life’s experiences with my guests, and that seems to empower them to open up and share in creating a bond of exchange, which is built as a by-product of teaching pottery.
My work is about the relation between myself and the audience, the audience and my work, or sometimes between two individuals who may or may not know about the artwork. It is a conduit for a social experience. I create a physical or digital space to be used for a particular theme that I want to convey, which is triggered by the audience. They are the ones who decide to participate, and this makes my work really come alive. Without that, I consider my work to be unsuccessful.
