As a ceramic artist and potter, I am interested in the specific function of pots and
why someone is driven to employ a piece of pottery. I grew up around job sites and for close to a decade worked as a painter. During that time, I became very
acquainted with the specific things certain tradesmen would carry, wear and use to complete the tasks set before them. Roofers had their protective sunhats, flooring guys donned knee pads and painters such as myself wore whites. It was
immediately understood the job they were there to do. I apply that same idea to the pots I make. I aim to make obvious what the pots intended use is and accent its form with a nuanced surface. I want the function of the piece to be at the forefront. The end goal is to have created something that does its job well.

My work is made from porcelaneous and iron rich stoneware clays that are then
fired in a wood burning kiln to around 2350 degrees Fahrenheit. This type of firing yields surfaces that range from glossy blues and greens, to deep reds, oranges and pinks. Wood firing allows me to work with a community of people who all share a common interest while still understanding the laborious and rewarding nature of this kind of firing.
