My Approach:

In this modern fast paced world, where everything is mass produced, I love the idea of making functional pottery that has some soul.  I try to incorporate evidence in my work that the piece was made by hand.  I intentionally leave my finger prints, or allow my throwing lines to be seen.  I also enjoy adding hand carved detail to give texture and to remind the user that this is a piece of pottery that was made with loving hands.  Most of my work is thrown on the wheel, but I do have a few hand built pieces as well. I love experimenting with different glaze combinations.    All of my pottery is meant to be used and enjoyed on a daily basis.
