Artists Statement:

My inspiration is the human connection that is fostered by ceramic vessels. For millennia, pottery has been present in communities and cultures worldwide. Pottery vessels are a means to bring sustenance to mind and body. They provide a means to share what you have with others. And even the clay itself has a mystical quality of capturing something of the human maker within itself.

One source of inspiration for my forms and glazes come from the outdoors. My favorite memories growing up occurred outside: climbing trees, swimming, walking in clover, laying in the grass on my back and gazing up at sky. I seek to capture the feel of the movement of tall grass in the wind or tree branches swaying against the sky; or the rippling texture of water flowing over rocks. I aspire to let the natural, organic thing happen as I build pots, apply glazes and put them in the fire.

These are some of my thoughts about the way I make things.
