I have been a studio artist for forty years now, making both sculpture and functional pottery. In recent years I have focused on pots, making them slowly by a variety of handbuilding processes, and building the surface with multiple layers of slips and glaze.

Making pots enables me to participate in an ancient human conversation through the work of my hands. My forms come out of my own ideas about food, history, and the body, but I am gratified that they go on to lead lives of their own: to inhabit other spaces, fit other hands, and fulfill other ideas of the useful and the beautiful.
