Statement of Intent

I create vessels by handbuilding or throwing on the potter's wheel. The vessels are made with a high iron bearing clay body.  Multiple colored crater or matt glazes are applied.  The pieces are fired in anelectric kiln to 2163 Fahrenheit with a combination slow and rapidcooling. Many crater glazed pieces are fired multiple times to obtain an appealing movement of the glaze resulting in a surface that is full of movement.

I combine my passion for gardening with my passion for ceramics and design forms that will compliment the various types of flowers and plants that I grow and propagate. The garden is one source of inspiration when designing vessels!  Other sources include Scandinavian design, Mid-Century design, Ikebana arrangements, and 12-15th century Persian and East Asian ceramic forms.

I want the work I create to be soothing to the soul and contribute peace and serenity to an interior environment.
