The world is textured. Everything is grooved, bumpy, patterned and complex. This is what I want to communicate with my work; an indulgence not only for the eyes but for the hands.
I work with low-fire red clay slabs that give me a two dimensional field to color and texture. Then the slabs are formed into cylinders, boxes or bowls. The soft drapery feeling from the slab is fixed when the clay is exposed the heat of the kiln.
As a statement against the mass production of modern life, each piece of my pottery is created as a unique, imperfect object linking the maker to the user.
