I enjoy the tactile feeling of the clay in my hands. Whether I am throwing or hand building I find the process meditative and the experience as a whole grounding.
I see pottery as a way for people to weave art into their daily lives, adding character and elegance to their living spaces. A handcrafted tea set celebrates our drinking tea and a pitcher can adorn the mantel when it is not in use.
My recent work is primarily functional. I may make a porcelain pendant or a stoneware bowl but either way I am able to bring art into every aspect of daily life and add a bit of beauty to each day.
