Artist Statement -

Beauty created by natural forces is sublime, sometimes so intense, sometimes hidden. I allow fire to finish my pots to include natural beauty in my creations.
I handbuild pots by the coil method then burnish them with a smooth stone. There is no glaze. Other than some color in the clay slips, all the color results from the firing. I remove the pots red hot from the kiln, then finish the firing in a pit. The hot pots contact various fuels such as sawdust, hair, flowers, or weeds, which leave smoke stains and areas which are reduced or oxidized.
