Artist Statement

I am a potter because I am mesmerized with clay. I knew the first time I worked with clay that this was the medium for my work. Being a potter satisfies multiple facets of my inner self; I am a designer, an artisan, an engineer, a chemist, a geologist, and a physicist all rolled into one.

My goal is to produce forms that are functional/comfortable to use, visually appealing/interesting, and can be used every day to bring art into people's lives; enhancing their experience with food and drink, adorning homes and working areas, and providing a necessary ritual to nourish the soul and mind as well as the body.
