Exploring form, texture, and light as it applies to translucent forms is the current direction of my work. I am working with porcelain, the best I can make, using fine European porcelains as my inspiration. To increase the strength and workability of the raw clay, I fold recycled paper/cotton fibers into the clay mix. This process is commonly referred to as "Paperclay." Next, I work with thin porcelain slabs and fold the cutout clay slab to obtain the desired shape. I strive to find movement and especially attitude in my work. Although my work has traditional aspects, the true intent is to produce fun, relaxed, and contemporary pottery. I create all the work in my studio without apprentices, employees, and commercial glazes or clays.
