I am a potter. I started working in clay when I was 4 years old.

Narrative

I enjoy making pots for everyday use; each is a subtle variation of a form - usually created in a series. I am a perfectionist (as much as the process allows) and am constantly in search of the perfect surface and ideal form while striving to create pots that have life and vitality. I love having the opportunity to fire in a wood kiln and make special work for that to take advantage of the ash & heat.
