My pots are made to peak your curiosity and evoke sentiments of beauty and purpose. As a potter, my goal is to make pots that move in and out of someone’s home that will enhance their experiences of intimacy, consumption and nourishment. My intent is that my work will live to serve those moments where relationships and experiences are a celebration of life. Most recently I have been influenced by the relationship between light and color in stained glass windows, as well as 19th century Chinese Rice Grain porcelain. Combining elements of porcelain, wheel throwing, mark making, and firing methods allows me to achieve dynamic forms and surfaces. I find that the process of making tends to answer ongoing questions as well as form new ones. I continue to investigate the unique and intimate relationship between object and user not only through a visual and physical experience, but a visceral one.
