We are a husband and wife team dedicated to making fine ceramic works. We use wheel thrown and hand built techniques, surface decoration, and glaze to make each piece a functional work of art. Our studio is open to the public.
I make functional pottery–tableware and serving pieces. One line of work is decorated with sgraffito or mishima designs inspired by nature. A second line is glazed with a blue glaze and ashes. Everything is dishwasher and oven safe.
Hand built figurative and abstract sculptures,wall pieces and functional work with emphasis on texture and natural colors.

Lively functional and decorative porcelain, each piece softly altered while freshly wheel-thrown. Mugs to candelabra/menorahs. In a soda kiln, flames decorate anticipated edges, and brighten a wide, colorful palette. For daily use and enjoyment.

Departing from curiosity, I aspire to heighten awareness of everyday sensorial experiences, highlighting what incited a question or reaction. It is curiosity which invites me to explore memory and emotions, finding a sensual language in the lights and shadows of malleable white clay.
