My clay vessels order and dignify human life. The slip cast forms are geometric and clean; handles and surfaces are kept very, very simple. The pure surfaces without ornamentation emphasize the materiality of clay and glaze. Glazes are thick, a material presence in themselves. The proportion of glazed to unglazed surfaces and their delineation of the form are primary visual elements. The red clay body adds warmth and life.
