Problems in Sailing

Problems in Sailing is a series of large-scale ceramic sculptures based on airplane and boat forms. My interest in these forms stem from both their familiarity and relevance to our society, along with their inherent beauty as objects.

This work seeks to combine my concerns about sculpture, painting, architecture and ceramics with some of the serious issues we are confronted with as human beings at this point in history.

I hope that these objects convey both the power and fragility of the human spirit as well as our tenuous relationship with nature.
