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.
Making wheel-thrown, functional pottery for 40 years. Wood-fired stoneware and earthenware. Figurative drawings on the clay vessels using slips, etched surfaces, and brush work. Glazes, slips, and wood firing give more depth to the surface.
We make a series of lamps and other decorative items. All pieces are hand built with slabs, hand carved, and fired with ash glazes.
