I am fortunate to be working with clay, which is so wonderfully tactile and responsive. As a potter, I want my pots to inhabit daily life – nourishment, celebration, comfort, and decoration. Lofty goals for a humble pot!
In our hurried world, using hand-made objects can give us a moment to pause, observe and connect with the maker. Creating work that successfully balances form, color, line and pattern is a goal and a thrill I never tire of as I am driven by my passion to create.
