I make pots that want to be held and used, to be a part of your everyday life. They are a reflection of my belief that we can choose to and, in fact, need to have beauty and grace in our everyday lives to enrich even the smallest of moments.
I have been drawn to all kinds of handmade pots ever since I can remember. When I pick up a pot I always wonder about the hands that made it and the marks they left. It feels to me like I am having a conversation with a stranger who in most cases I will never know.
I have had many teachers over the years, looked at pots here at home, in Europe, and especially in Japan, where I was invited to make pots for six weeks in 2002.
I work in porcelain, painting the surfaces with slips and underglazes. My work is, I think, a reflection and personal interpretation of all those teachers and all those pots I have loved.
My work is dishwasher and microwave safe and contains no lead glazes.
