My work hovers between pottery and sculpture. Some pieces move in a sculptural direction, yet still derive some of their form from vestiges of my more utilitarian work. I find this a fascinating interplay, with one body of work informing the other and making both stronger for their interaction. My influences include a diverse range of mostly vessel-oriented forms, from the  often mysterious chemical glassware and porcelain I grew up with in my father’s ancient chemical laboratory, to ancient South American pottery, to odd bits of farm equipment from my grandfather’s farm, and the industrial detritus that litters our world.

I make porcelain and stoneware pieces that are part a long line of work, most of them soda or salt fired, others glazed and fired, and an occasional wood-fired piece or two. Atmospheric firing is the way that I think when I’m working in clay after 40-plus years of soda and salt firing my pieces. I love the complex surfaces that result from creating forms that will react to the movement of sodium through the kiln.
