    I like meeting and talking to those interested in my artwork and pottery enthusiasts. Since times have changed, I'm conducting all sales either over the phone or by email and will email you a Square Invoice for payment. Don’t hesitate to call me, but if we don't answer, please leave a message with your phone number and a good time to return your call, as I'm probably down at the studio having fun in my playground. 

 

     My work is dominantly constructed using wheel-thrown sections that are altered, embellished, and assembled. I decorate the pieces with multiple glazes, often layering them, to be fired to cone 6 in an electric kiln or to cone 10 in my gas reduction kiln. My pottery glazes are all food safe and safe to use in a microwave and dishwasher. The insides of mugs, teapots, pitchers, etc., are glazed with a glossy glaze for easy cleaning. The outside glazes may be either matte of glossy.

     My work plays upon traditional pottery forms that transcends function while embracing it. Divided between utilitarian pottery and glorified functional vessels, both intentions share similar sensibilities and handling of the clay. Ideas and information from one intention feed the other. My utilitarian pottery is elegantly or whimsically designed to perform with ease and delight. To fully understand my utilitarian pottery, it must be used to experience the feel of the handle, the sound of the tea as it pours out of the spout, grasping the knob on a jar lid, or the way my bowls displays its contents. I want my work to transform the everyday experience of using a functional piece of pottery into a special occasion. My glorified vessels are based upon functional pottery vessels that abandon utilitarian concerns for a more sculptural approach on form, surface embellishment, and presentation. Each piece is made with a high level of craftsmanship and designed to portray a particular characteristic, gesture, mood, or feeling through a particular alteration and embellishment and then enhanced with a wide variety of glazes, glaze applications, and firing methods. I hope my artwork is well received, engages, and brings enjoyment to all.
