My work is guided by a less-is-more philosophy. I love the tactile quality of clay as it spins on a potter’s wheel, and I want my vessels to reflect this process. My glazing is minimal, to reveal the marks and undulations left by my hands and tools. My aesthetic synthesizes urban and rustic influences. I want my pieces to bring joy to the touch as well as pleasing the eye.
Clay found me in a high school art class. I took the dense grey lump into my hands and it was love at first squeeze. Since that day, pottery has been a constant in my life. The dance between hands and clay captures my imagination. For me, a happy day is one spent elbows-deep in mud!
