About Me

For me, clay is magical, and making pottery is what I love doing the most.

A Challenge from a Potter

A fellow potter presented me with a challenge recently, to describe my work in five adjectives. The first and most basic is function. All of my work is meant to serve a function and to be used. The next is instinctive. My work comes from within me in an instinctive, non-cerebral way. It is not that I don’t think about them, but the process is very basic and essential to who I am.
My pots are also organic. By that, I mean that they relate to natural patterns and biologic rhythms. Surfaces are not graphic but rather I derive my inspirations from patterns and forms in nature—designs the tide makes in the sand, the bark of a tree, the colors of the sunset, the shape of a gourd. My pieces are also exuberant, full of joyous enthusiasm to reflect the joy and unreserved energy I feel in making them. Finally, they are audacious. I fearlessly take chances in making my pottery and I hope each piece reflects that verve and originality.
