Jesse Hickman: I make objects. As best I can, I work intuitively, trusting where my stomach leads me rather than where my head seduces me to venture. What I work on today influences what I will work on tomorrow. Each day I try to push myself further than I did the day before, scratching away the debris that shrouds my essence. The need to make art and the drive to grow, pull me back into the studio to learn more about who I am and what I make.
