My background is in graphics and design, and I think that has led to a fondness of edge, curve, arc and function. I tend to favor abstract to naturalistic. I like the subtle virtues of a good handmade pot, the small undulations and marks of the potter, handles that feel good, lips that pour well. I love texture and movement.
There is a quality to thrown pottery that goes well with homemade food and good company. The pots have their own individual character that fits the setting. I make my pots with a nod towards the shared meals with family and friends that we all enjoy.
Handmade pots come alive when handled and observed up close, My pots stand up well to daily use, which allows them to be decorative at rest and then readily employed in the kitchen, at the table, or even in the dishwasher.Studio Number: 414
