My work engages with concepts of identity. Through the making of objects that elicit memory, whether experienced or imagined, my work is an investigation of the self and of our attachments. Interpreting my surroundings in order to re-examine and re-invent, My Canadian Landscape is a wood-fired series that looked to my city block as a muse— the visual identity of Toronto that lies in front, above and below me. The city manhole covers were my texture and the buildings my form. Using wood to fuel the kiln, the clay was deliberately left bare in order to allow the natural effects of the flame and ash to adorn the surfaces. I appreciate the mundane textures and forms of the everyday and these vessels serve as trace souvenirs of my immediate surroundings.
