What is my art about?
My art practice dabbles between two worlds.
One is series of functional items, that is decorated with Albertan motifs, the spooky occult and knives. This fills my obsession with the handmade beauty of everyday items.
The second is based around food security, social practice and the dissemination of knowledge between generations. I create large ceramic vessels. From this I bring together communities in order to create an opportunity to have conversation on the technical knowledge on how to use them. Everytime something is made, knowledge is shared. Creating a space for future generations to continue the conversation about food security and independence.
