My pottery is primarily functional. I try to be aware of the convenience and comfort of the user, so my pots may become favorite tools in the kitchen or on the table. And I want to make beautiful pots that enhance the beauty of the house, with simplicity and elegance. And finally, I am interested in the role pottery plays in the history of human culture, its place in domestic life, in ritual, and in artistic expression. I believe that our lives are improved by using handmade, locally made, individually made objects. My current work is white stoneware clay with black underglaze decoration, fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln.
