I work with porcelain, a luscious white clay with lovely qualities of depth and brilliance. I started making pots because it was fun to make useful pottery. I was interested in striving toward the handmade and personal. Over time, I have refined both my work and my goals to a very simple but sometimes difficult objective. I want to make beautiful pots. I hope my simple cups are lovely to use and hold, and radiant in glaze and detail. My larger work and sculptural pieces are more varied, but unified by a strong sense of bold form, gestural line, and attitude. The glazes range greatly between subtle and rich to luscious and sexy. Life has become very complicated in many ways. In my artwork, I only want to do one thing. I hope to make beautiful pots.
