Artist Statement




Through the medium of clay, I create simple, refined, richly glazed forms, treating the surface of the pot as a canvas to bring color and movement to the vessel. To create these surface designs, I use brushes to layer multiple patterns of glaze into a complex and interwoven set of colors and space; these colors are brought to life through a cone 10 reduction fire. I strive to have each piece express itself uniquely, embodying qualities of fluidity, boldness, balance, and mystery. As an artist, I use the power of elemental forms and colors to open us to a deeper sense of internal space, contemplation, and wonder.
