I’m interested in forms that reflect surfaces appearing in nature by incorporating various clay textures and glaze combinations into my work.
I find joy in creating work that connects me to the outdoors. I love to watch a mountain or tree appear from a few simple carved lines. I feel connected to the past when pressing lace someone made decades ago into clay in order to create an interesting texture. I smile when I mark the clay with simple squiggle lines. Making pottery by hand is a slow and quiet process similar to walking in the woods, knitting by hand, or even rock climbing. Be present, put down the devices, and breathe in the details.
