When I make pots, I subtly suggest figure and character by manipulating forms after they are thrown.   Using clay slabs, I hand build elements that are assembled with thrown parts to create pieces that have a personality of their own.  I like to experiment and play with form and proportion of functional ware by altering and stacking parts. I love to decorate each piece, responding to form, and making marks to designs enhance the volume of each pot. I am inspired by historical pots from many cultures, including Japanese, Crete, Chilean, Chinese, and native North American.  The pots I respond to may be a quirky Pre-Columbian animal ewer, or the sophisticated designs of a Mimbres bowl.  Salt firing enhances the surface both visually and tactility. I focus on creating altered pottery form that are good companions for daily use, encouraging you to hold the moment, enriching daily rituals.
