Almost all the pottery I make is based on utility. Hopefully my pots are approachable, accessible and affordable and will be used daily.
We live in what is considered a temperate rain forest. Summers are green and lush and the winter is fairly mild. The surfaces of my work tend to reflect that in my decorating of the work.
I’m inspired from the act of making. It’s deeply satisfying using my hands to form on the potter’s wheel, extrude components to construct forms and making slab of clay to build objects that would will earn a place in someone’s kitchen cabinets.
