Growth is a series of sculptural works that respond to the intuitive process of coil building with clay and primitive tools.  I use visual sources like architecture, plant life and the human body (to name just a few) to create abstract references.  These forms begin with no planning, and literally grow in layers from the bottom up.  The time between each layer necessary for structural integrity allows for consideration and decision-making that respond directly to the work as it is made.
