Cups are about accessibility. We know immediately what a cup is from its scale, proportions, and simple format. From there, they become an exploration of relationships between utility and the body, movement and volume, surface and color. I want my cup volumes to express motion and fullness of form, while presenting an invitation to utility. Wood and soda fired surfaces are used to accentuate form, layering information about how the draft of the kiln and glazes interact with the cup forms.
