I tru­ly enjoy mak­ing pots. I love the chal­lenge of mak­ing a good, use­ful pot that some­one will enjoy using every day. When I sit at my wheel each day I try to focus on how this piece will be used… how the rim will feel against the lip, if the han­dle will be com­fort­able to the hand and if this pot’s form will hold some­one’s inter­est years from now.

Recent­ly I start­ed work­ing with earth­en­ware and col­ored slips. This new evo­lu­tion is real­ly excit­ing for me, I’ve been able to bring pots to life that had been float­ing around in my head for quite some time.
