Florence, MA

During the three years that I lived in a monastery in Japan, I was struck by the way that ceramic objects enter into almost every sphere of life there, one material elegantly erasing the boundary between sacred and mundane. This began a subtle and ongoing shift in how I understand the relationship between function and form, tradition and innovation, material and experience. Deeply grateful for the boundaries that function and tradition place on my work, I aim to make pots that evoke a sense of history yet are born entirely of our present moment.
