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. I’m also excited by the surfaces I’ve been able to achieve with salt firing and how that has allowed me to explore the relationship between surface and form.
For the last couple of years I’ve been using image transfer techniques to add my drawings to my pots, bringing together my background in printmaking and design with my pottery. I love this new direction my work is taking and all its possibilities.
