"Fundamentally I approach my work as though it is a set of problems that need solving. Design and utility are the primary elements I consider and use to determine the spirit of my pieces. I work in series and sets, which compels me to expand an initial idea into a variety of designs. Throughout the process I allow materials and mistakes to inform me. Guided by an aesthetic of clarity and restraint, my wares are imbued with a sense of quiet sophistication and simplicity. Elegant linear refinement lends poised beauty to my functional tableware."
