In May 2015, I received my Master of Fine Arts in ceramics from SUNY New Paltz.  In my thesis semester, I installed a gallery exhibition that was supported by a dissertation, which explored the function and perception of a vase and how our relationship to it has shifted over time. 

Digital technologies, such as a CNC milling machine and laser cutter, were used as a tool to create the vases, as well as traditional plaster turning.
