Artist Statement

I love all things ceramic and am constantly experimenting with clay bodies, firing methods and glazes. I make a wide variety of functional and sculptural ceramic objects that have a playful and modern feel. The majority of my work is made from a medium-range stoneware and oxidation fired, but I'll never be completely reigned in.  

My sculptures are biomorphic creatures that attempt to blend some of the physical characteristics of mollusks, worms, birds and fish with human elements and personality. They often have a ridiculous or indecent essence- and that is what keeps it fun.  

My pots are designed for use. The are decorated with repetitive graphic patterns that emphasize light and dark, rough and smooth, or hard and soft. It's all safe for the microwave, dishwasher and oven.
