I am so fortunate to have found my passion for the process and practice of ceramics. There is a flow in my work, from one piece to another, from one series to another. A new idea takes shape and the first successful piece inspires the next and several pieces have similar ideas and become a series.
When creating, I use lines, texture, and chaos. The clay is thrown, rolled, torn and ripped then attached to create a tension between a disciplined, balanced core and an expressive and sometimes explosive flow of movement. With the addition and subtraction of clay I strive for an overall balance and calm. I fire in a gas, electric or raku kiln, depending on my vision for the outcome.
My artistic goal is to create a strong visual element, a pleasing combination of positive form and negative space. I strive to develop a line of work that is decorative, contemporary and unique.
