I enjoy making useful objects with clay. I have a practical nature. Nevertheless, I want my cups, bowls, and vases to blur the line between art and craft. My forms are often canvases for me. On them I draw and paint with line, texture, and glazes. In our natural world each leaf or flower conforms to its patterns of nature but still is marked by the forces of the wind, water and sun it endures. Similarly, in my work, the pieces are related like a family, but each piece is still unique, a mark in time of my thoughts and feelings as I make. I hope that you will connect with my artwork, love using it and find additional joy in the moment by using the pieces in your daily life.
