About my work...

I create porcelain objects often incorporating highly embellished surfaces.
My pieces are hand built using slab construction techniques. I use a variety of texture making tools, ceramics pigments and translucent glazes. I fire in an oxidation atmosphere to cone 6.
I am inspired by nature, fabric/textiles, graphic design and architecture. Each piece is a representation of my interest in exploring the elements of line, color, pattern and detail. I often work on an intimate scale meant to entice the viewer both physically and visually. Most of my pieces are one-of-a-kind.
My genuine enjoyment of the medium is evident by the playful nature of my work but I also strive to convey refinement and meticulous craftsmanship in each piece.
