My pots are contemporary; the designs I use are ancient. I’ve devoured books, hung out in museums and traveled the world in search of indigenous designs, particularly animal imagery. I work in a funky, old building behind my home in Randolph, MA, firing in a gas kiln. To make my pots look as time-worn as the petroglyphs that inspire them, I sometimes pile them with leaves and ash before placing them in the kiln. As I work, I’m engaged in conversations that span millenia, allowing myself to listen and respond to the work of artisans that lived in the distant past. While some of my pots are decorative and made to hang on walls, most of it is for daily use. They’re oven-, microwave-, and dishwasher-safe.
