“The wide variety of colors and textures exhibited by nature through the seasons has always fascinated me. This appreciation for variety has made its way into the narrative pottery I produce today. Frequently while hiking with my dog Brittany, we experience breath taking views that are just begging to be shared in my art.
Over the years, I have developed a strong interest in Classic Arts and Crafts furniture and pottery. After collecting a few pieces, I started designing specific pieces of pottery to compliment my furniture. My intention is to create new designs that reflect the warm-toasty feeling achieved from the arts and crafts period. Incorporating matte, earth tones with colored glazes and innovative techniques using sgraffito, carving, and hand-made impressions characterize my signature works. Although finely detailed, my pottery is very durable, with its peak firing temperature reaching over 2100 degrees.”
