Pottery is an ancient artform that evolved to fill the everyday needs of those who created it. This interaction involved people physically engaging their works of art in their everyday lives in a way that is very unique to pottery. It is this interaction between pottery and people that I find so captivating.
I make pottery that is designed to be used by it’s owner. This functional and physical interaction between the work and the beholder is as important to me – if not more so – then visual perception. Weight, balance and purpose are as equally coveted as aesthetic, color, and shape.
