Since I began working in clay, my goal has been to make unique forms that bring as much joy and merriment to their owners as they do when I am creating them. "Footed Bowls" are created from stoneware clay slabs and are hand-built. They are thematically based on interpretations of popular footwear designs or well-known characters. If there is an idea that intrigues me, I plow through the kinks until it meets my satisfaction. This is the impetus for these whimsical bowls as they become beloved personalities. They express attitude without a face. They can be functional, holding practical things, yet quirky. They are created with love and care, and glaze is applied with attention to detail.
