I am a ceramist living and working in San Francisco. I am incredibly grateful to be able to pursue my passion for art in clay and to share a studio with my exuberant and creative 8 year old daughter!

In making ceramics I channel and focus my creative energy to make a work of art. Quietly concentrating on shape, line, design, surface and color allows me to express my drive for order, beauty and form.
In my work form takes precedence over function, and the pieces are primarily decorative. I seek to craft an object that pleases my eye, that I connect with and that I hope will resonate with others.
The forms I make are simple yet sophisticated, elegant and design driven, but also incorporate organic elements, as is the nature of handmade things.
I create my pieces on a pottery wheel using porcelain clay, and fire in an electric kiln. I make all my own glazes in my studio from dry materials.
The rough clays and studied imperfection of centuries of Japanese ceramics and the sublime simplicity and subtle organic features of mid-20th century Scandinavian pottery inspire and influence my aesthetic.
