With a focus on utilitarian pottery forms, I strive to create beautiful, well crafted, functional forms that people will enjoy. They are designed for display and engagement in the home and day to day life. I hope that even the smallest of details such as the way the handle fits in your hand or the angle of the lip are pleasant areas for use. The surface's are painterly yet influenced by my graphic design background.
My pots allude to the industrial or commercial; they are familiar enough that people
will relate to them but upon further inspection the hand and qualities that I put into
my work are evident. Each step of the process during making is well considered.
Pots become a part of our eating and drinking habits and/or rituals allowing for us to serve food with ceremony. I create these pieces through the wheel and hand alterations. I create my surfaces through a variety of decoration techniques including colored slips, underglazes and glazes.
