Artist Statement
I am a ceramic artist. I started working in clay over 20 years ago and I haven’t looked back.
I create functional and sculptural, hand-built works using slab construction with red clay that is then fired in an electric kiln.
I am inspired by a revolving list of things, but I am most consistently interested in old or vintage items including buildings, dishes, containers, tinware, bottles and especially aged and worn surfaces….a surface that holds a story.
The surfaces of my work are highly textured and colored and finished with washes to give a patina or aged look.
I love the product of my craft and its place in people’s lives. Just as I love surrounding myself with and using handmade objects, it is my hope that my pots bring the same joy and richness to others.
