I focus on creating and interpreting altered pottery forms that function well. Working with stoneware clay, I subtly suggest figure and character by manipulating forms after they are thrown. I also roll out clay slabs and use them to hand build elements that are then assembled with thrown parts to create pieces that have a personality of their own. An integral part of my work includes surface decoration to enhance pottery form by patterning and painting slips and glazes for salt firing. I make things to entice the user to take pleasure in everyday activities, inviting participation, promoting hospitality. These personal rituals create a place for pots whether it is for your morning cup of coffee, for a celebratory dinner party, or for freshly picked flowers.
