Clay is a constant challenge always presenting new questions of form, design and surface treatment. The success of a finished piece is dependent on so many variables. The completed pot represents an amalgam of all previous approaches, successes, failures, as well as conscious and subconscious visions of good pottery.
In my studio, I use a wide range of colors and temperatures to finish my work. Bowls, plates, vases, jars, and lamps are the forms I continue to explore on the wheel or through handbuilding. Low fire, mid-range, high fire, and raku constitute my menu of kiln choices. Whimsical designs, geometric lines, stamped patterns, and free flowing brush strokes are all within my repertoire of design. The end result is a piece that I hope you will enjoy and use in your home.
Ode to a Grecian Urn won the Award of Merit at the Roberson Regional Art Exhibition, 2011.
The raku firing process produces variations in color. Visit my raku pages to see many examples of these stunning color variations.
