Maker's Quote

Some of my work may appear to be imperfect. Perfection contains only one message, which is clearly defined by the maker. My attempt is to express the condition of progress in my work; something ambiguous, unsettled and imaginative, so that the user of my work sees the journey the object has taken, from raw clay to firing.
