Working within a traditional framework, it is important to me that my work moves beyond that framework to carry information personal to myself to the viewer/user.  Each piece is considered as an individual. I approach my work intuitively, finding that while I have certain ideas or parameters about form and finished product it is essential to the vitality of the piece to remain open and maintain a dialogue during the creating process. Through this process I hope to reveal the unique, friendly and responsive, and robust qualities of clay as a material.

My intent is that these pieces stand alone as visual objects. My hope is that they move beyond that to express emotional, sensual, tactile, spiritual, and ritual sensibilities—these sensibilities being enhanced by the communication and sharing that occurs through use. Accessibility is also an important component of my work and I am never happier than when someone expresses their delight in using one of my pieces.
