Artist Statement

As a potter, one of my hopes is that my work will expose people to fine handmade objects. I am a believer in pots that feel right in the hand and are a joy to use. I delight in sharing communal activities such as eating and drinking with people. It is in these experiences where it is rewarding to have my pots being used. I primarily fire my work with wood. The wood kiln enhances the surface of my work with a myriad of effects. I make forms to complement these effects. Recently, I have been pairing my wood fired surfaces with wooden lids. It has been enjoyable to see the softer complements that wood as a material brings to my work.
