Artist Statement:

I find both a sense of community and endless opportunities to challenge myself in this craft.  I have been creating pottery for over 20 years.  My current body of work “It Takes a Community”. Is functional stoneware.  I use a dark mid cal 5 clay, with a bright white slip.  I fire to cone 6 in oxidation.  It reflects a balance between planning shape and function and the free flow of carving the images.  I strive to make pieces that are well made and bring people together in their use.  I am drawn to the simplicity of the slip design and the complexity of the images.
