This MFA Thesis exhibits research regarding a sublime experience when encountering a moment of beauty, through the medium of digitally designed and hand crafted tile. "I return to the water’s edge to feel my mind empty before me. Water gives form to a swell of intentions, released to drift, reflect, and find resonance with the tide. I pair digital and craft based techniques to infiltrate contemporary design and honor traditions of handmade ceramics. Patterns function as a vehicle through space, offering markers for perception and revealing a subliminal tendency to seek order and repetition. Creating patterns with Computer Aided Design, mold making and slip casting, allow me to offer an experience that provides the viewer with a quiet, immense moment."
