“Step out of your comfort level,” is something one often hears when it comes to creating art. In my case, it is not a phrase that fits my lifestyle; most of my days are fairly predictable, with small changes day to day. This is not to say that I lead a uneventful life by any means. Realizing and embracing a routine is what has driven my body of work.

Collaborative movement is the idea that through the movement of glaze, form and atmosphere, I aim to collaborate with the inherent uncertainties that come from atmospheric firing. I view these uncertainties as an asset to my work. I apply glazes that react with the atmosphere, creating an asymmetry in color and surface to promote the effects that I seek, while the form and placement in the kiln encourages the flame path to create unrepeatable results.

As a maker of objects that are intended for everyday use, I strive for my work to elevate the everyday experience. Through conversation, a simple mundane task such as drinking your morning coffee can become the focal point of your day. The conversation that handmade pottery invites is unlike any other.
