"It is difficult to stay grounded in a world filled with materialism and consumer ideologies. In this body of ceramic work I focus on products endorsed through social media and advertisements that aim to coax us into an artificial world fueled by popular culture.
I have grown up in a time that the environment is rapidly changing, and it feels as though it is something about which I can do nothing. Discussions about climate change and the destruction of our natural resources seem to occur on a daily basis. I know that I will see even more dramatic changes in my lifetime. I am fearful and anxious about my future. My photographs, quite literally, put a spotlight on the natural world. I’m exploring the concept of vulnerability because I feel vulnerable, from both a personal and global perspective."
