“I enjoy making functional pots that enhance everyday life. I love the satisfaction of knowing my pieces are being used in daily life rather then put on display.  I hope my pots communicate to their user the pleasure and tranquility that I experience throughout the process of turning clay into everyday objects.  Whether I use rough stoneware or fine porcelain; I focus on the form and the function of my pots.  I strive to harmonize the relationship between form, function and the nature of the clay.”
