I like to bring a sense of movement to my pots, clay can be twisted and tweeked, cut and chattered on the wheel. A moment when a design choice is made allows the user to connect to the clay’s soft history.

 

I enjoy the metamorphosis that occurs during the process of soda and crystalline glaze firing. The excitement when opening the kiln, never knowing what is waiting for you inside keeps me intrigued. The crystals have a life of their own and the path of the soda vapor through the kiln is like a river of fire painting the final piece

 

My greatest goal is that someone forms a connection with one of my pieces and wants to utilize it daily because it has character and is unique, something that is hard to find in this day in age of mass production.
