I enjoy altering pots as directly and simply as possible.  The alterations are intended to add interest to wheel-thrown forms, and working directly when the clay is soft suits my temperament.  Hopefully, this way of working allows the process of making to inform the pots in ways I can’t foresee.  I look for a quiet softness and subtle movement away from the symmetrical nature of the thrown forms.  These pots often make the choice of surface and glaze a natural extension of what begins to suggest itself as the forms develop.
