It’s all about what inspires me in the moment, or what I may need in the kitchen. I do ceramics because I love the process and if someone else likes what comes out of the kiln, well, that’s an extra joy. I start with rugged slabs of clay and a loose vision. Through the creative process of building up a piece; layering slips, stains, and glazes, I balance spontaneous and gestural elements with refined simplicity. My pieces are both functional and sculptural.
