With one foot in Soil Science, and one foot in creative arts, I celebrate clay as the perfect medium for my explorations and expression! Imagining my hands persuading the billions of clay micelles to line up “just so” is a kick, and thinking about all that has to happen -from rock, to clay, to finished piece – makes each attempted work an adventure.
Right now, porcelain provides the perfect combination of challenge and satisfaction; glaze pencils, mason stains, and clear glazes complete the vessel. I work in a small scale and hand build delicate, functional pieces – each emerges with a distinctive personality, inviting you to pick it up and investigate its surface.
We are surrounded by endless inspiration, and I delight in the fun of expressing this beauty with humor and proud homage to those who continue to teach me this craft.
