My work focuses on a pottery idiom, often incorporating historical references and images with domestic objects. I work in both porcelain and black clays, firing with atmospheric kilns. The pieces undergo multiple post firings to achieve a depth of surface.

While function continues to be an essential concern, I am most intrigued with the ability of pots to transcend themselves as objects and convey information. The ability for the work to draw relationships to history and culture through form and surface content holds my fascination.

At its best the work becomes both artifact and object of the contemporary world.  The use of glaze as a painterly ground provides terrain to interact with imagery and or form that results in a fertile ground for endless investigation.
