I am focused on making carefully crafted thoughtful utilitarian pottery. In forming pots, the potter is informing the user. How the cup, bowl, mug is shaped affects how the user connects and completes the work. There is an intimacy in the use of handmade pots that does not exist in other art forms. It is this connection, this intimacy that drives me in the studio, encourages me to keep the wheel spinning and the kilns hot.
