I'm never quite certain whether I chose to be a potter, or whether it chose me. But we are clearly hopelessly bound for this lifetime. And I am grateful for that.

For over thirty years I have chased after the subtleties of what makes a beautiful, functional, inspiring and even transcendent piece of pottery, from the techniques to be mastered in manipulating the clay to the chemistry involved in successfully getting it through the firing process.

I love the lexicon, the language, of traditional pottery forms and how they speak to our daily tasks. I love that these forms can be a canvas for so many decorative processes and possibilities from deeply layered surfaces that reflect the natural world, to bold political statements of change.
