This body of work began as an exploration of hand built ceramic vessels. The pieces immediately took on the feel of musical instruments that begged to be handled or played. I began researching the art of making ceramic instruments and incorporating the function of sound-making into my pieces. While the sculptural aspect is stronger than the playability of some, the possibility of sound exists in them all. The instruments are predominantly membranophones and aerophones.
