Colorful Stoneware Platters

Artist contact info:




My pieces reflect an interest in asymmetrical forms and expressive surface decoration. I press and stamp industrial recyclables, found objects, and other textured materials onto hand-rolled slabs of clay to create "abstract landscapes" which are draped over forms and allowed to stiffen. I apply glazes and stains that accentuate the textures. My pieces exploit the paradox of durable fired clay that appears soft, wet, and flexible.

Each piece is an experiment incorporating a unique combination of materials, methods, and serendipity in its creation.

Stoneware pieces are fired to Cone 6 (2232° F) and are lead-free, dishwasher-safe, waterproof, and safe to use with food.
