I am in constant awe of the patterns, textures, and rhythms of nature. I wish my work to reflect this, as well as nature's mystery, to let the clay dance in my hands and my body so that the clay and I become one. And when the user of these pots eats, drinks, or arranges flowers, I hope he or she can experience this mystery and the sacredness of life in small daily rituals. I make high-fired stoneware and porcelain designed for everyday use. I share a studio with other Guild craftspeople, and fire in several large reduction kilns, using propane and wood. We sell our work in our gallery at the Folk Art Guild and many galleries all over New York State.
