Artist Statement

The responsiveness of clay has intrigued me since my first pottery class thirty years ago. Creating with the raw materials and the science of making glazes and firing kilns are equally engaging for me. Working with high-fire stoneware and porcelain, I use the potter’s wheel and handbuilding techniques to create utilitarian pots. Soda-firing adds an element of the unexpected with a direct marking from the flame.

Studio is open by appointment during the remainder of the year.
