I create functional pottery that is minimalist, useful, and that instills curiosity in an effort to connect to the user and the home it enters. William Morris said have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful and believe to be beautiful. It is important to me that truth in materials is maintained in my work. This tenet of modern architecture, asserting that any material should be used only where it is most appropriate and its nature should not be hidden, is essential and visible in my work. Architectural, yet soft and inviting, the cups and bowls I make are asking to be held, to be touched, to be used.
