I make pottery that concerns change: growth, erosion, order and disorder. Inspired by pattern and by landscape, my pieces often reference natural theatre like wind whipped grasses, turbulent skies or melting ice and snow. I work to depict visual movement across or down the surface of my pottery and also to embed movement into the surface, revealing and concealing layers.

Most recently, my work is directly inspired by the various plants and flowers I encounter in my community. Wild or cultivated, I see them as they change seasonally, endure stresses from sun and wind, and create intricate visual patterns with each other as they drift and twist according to the larger rhythm of the weather.
