I characterize my work as “diminutive stoneware”.
I favor soft, understated glazing - influenced by the traditional pottery in Japan. I enjoy mixing glazes to achieve different blends of color and pattern.
My intention is to let my work speaks with one voice yet each individual pot expresses something unique.
