Since clay is almost infinitely malleable, my work is a well-spring of functional pottery and figurative sculpture, lit by beautiful glazes, and touched with humor. Generally, I form the basic shapes on a potter’s wheel, then hand-sculpt or paint figures or wildlife on the pieces, making each unique. When the simple symmetry of a piece is compelling, I use glazes to add interest or highlight the shape. Most of the glazes are formulated and mixed in my studio, intentionally maintaining a palette with depth and originality. Contributing to this variability is my tendency to use different clay ranging from bright white porcelain, to speckled stoneware, to deep chocolate-colored stoneware. This humble, earthy material is transformed in the hope of sparking joy.
