1732 Quince Ave, Boulder CO 80304
I am an art educator and artist working and living in north Boulder. My ceramic work is always changing but I have always worked with raku pottery and sculpture, as it embodies my interests in all things ceremonial. I explore other medium including pastel, printmaking and recycled wood as well.
I am interested in textural form and blending sculpted emements with thrown forms. My glazes are mostly minimal, challenging me to concentrate more on form, shape, and line, rather than color. However, I do love to include color glazes and experimental surfaces in the raku process. Raku is a 500 yr old Japanese technique with pottery, surrounding the Japanese Tea Ceremony. Pots are taken directly out of the kiln at 1800 degrees F. and placed in combustible materials to create spontaneous and random effects on the ware.
