My current work is inspired by historical ceramic, glass and metal vessels and constructed from found plastic bottles.  I collect discarded juice, soda and water bottles, cut them into pieces and use the parts to create new vessels. The original material is transformed from plastic trash into pieces that address issues of mass production, waste, the environment, the value of objects, history and culture.
