From the Artist:
I am deeply committed to a life of learning. My work is influenced by observations of familiar sights in my environment. Pieces begin as intuitive responses to those visual clues. Wide ranges of materials are chosen to create layers of meaning and irony in the pieces and to draw a relationship between the visual source and the implications of a particular material.
I make pottery out of stoneware clay that is responsive to the human touch and when fired becomes dense and strong. I am not bound by any one genre of clay. I allow my natural curiosity to guide my work and I often bring colors from the landscape into the work. These vessels are intended for use and contemplation.
