A buildings character is defined by its facade.

Identity in architecture through ornament and relief

My goal is to surprise the public by developing new, adventurous ceramic surfaces: ornament and relief for the skin of facades, characterized by texture, pattern, colour and influenced by changing sunlight and shadow.

I play a unique collaborative role in contemporary architectural ceramics. My focus is on helping to generate new ideas about how to use clay and glaze in building designs. In addition I assist the architect in dealing with other various aspects of the ceramic industry. My input can result in the architect learning about the extensive possibilities of these materials. Ultimately the design process is enhanced.
