I love clay for its simply organic composition. After over twenty years of working with clay i feel as though my exploration of the medium is just beginning. My work is inspired and derived from my love of texture, asymmetry, imperfection and a desire to create utilitarian artwork from materials that are found within our natural elements and transformed into something of beauty and function. Through my art i hope to create works that nourish the soul, engage the senses, enhance the visual aesthetics of ones culinary experience, and of course cultivate conversation.

I use textiles to transfer texture onto the clay, glazes to color the pottery and all of my work is slab built or wheel thrown.
