Artist Statement

My work possesses a strong sense of straight forward form. These forms are intended to enclose volume, therefore gracefully swelling and curving. It is influenced by many historical ceramic movements such as the Punchong wares of the Choson Dynasty of Korea, and Oribe traditions of Japan. It is also derived from contemporary American potters, specifically those potters who studied with or were strongly influenced by Bernard Leach and the Japanese Mengei movement. Pitchers, bowls, cups and other pots are intended to provide the user with comfort and confidence in their utility.
