Artist Statement

I gather both inspiration and natural materials from the Atlantic and Pacific coastal regions, as well as the areas around Taos and Santa Fe New Mexico. I would characterize my pottery as being organically inspired and calming to the senses. They reflect my feelings about the experience of personal growth; physical, mental and spiritual. I use asymmetric balance as an expression of the challenges of our lives, a reminder that we can keep our center and grow more uniquely beautiful as our own life story unfolds.

My technique typically involves either throwing and altering, or pinch work. In the process of experimenting with different clay bodies, I discovered an affinity for porcelain. I have a strong attachment to nature, so although I occasionally work with oxides, glazes and underglazes, it is my often my choice to finish a piece by burnishing with terra sigillata. Depending on the particular series being created, the work may be smoked after the burnishing or it may be left white and finally buffed with archival wax.

I have achieved my goal when my vessels take on a personality of their own. I allow the forms to develop a story or personality, an almost human evolvement. Things happen in life. We are shaped by so many factors. As a result, we come into our own as unique individuals and my vessels reflect this process....
