Artist Statement

My goal is to integrate form, function and surface in a manner that brings a sense of excitement to my work. I am continually exploring the relationship between surface decoration and form, while in the surface treatment of my work I use line, pattern and color to create the varied surfaces. The floral motifs on my pots are patterns rather than actual representations that serve to divide the space in interesting ways. The gold decals are used as a contrast to my painterly surfaces.

My work is a contemporary approach to the traditional majolica of the Italian Renaissance. Majolica is a glaze tradition that began in the Middle East in the 9th century. The majolica glaze makes a good surface for decorating.

The various colors are applied with a brush to create the patterns and decorations. The pots are then fired to cone 04 in an electric kiln. After the firing the glazed surface maintains both the line quality of the patterns and the colors of the decoration. Then the gold decals are added in an additional firing.

Finally, I love to make pots and I love to decorate and I combine these two loves in my work. My hope is the pots invite use and that my pleasure in making them is shared by the user.
