My intention as a ceramic artist is to explore the boundaries of clay within the classical elements. I’m attracted to creating both functional and decorative objects using ancient firing techniques and understanding the chemistry of glazes. My focus on Shino glaze and ashes renders wildly beautiful and unique pieces. I love to fire my minimal backyard pit, fusing bisque ware to organic materials. As I continue on my journey of experimentation, I will value the beauty in the imperfect.
