Artist's Statement: I love all aspects of working in clay. From tactile work in wet clay through the imaginative ways to alter pieces, carve, embellish and decorate, to the many options at the glazing stage including the creation of my own glazes to obtain pleasing textures, colors and surfaces. My inspirations come from many places: nature hikes in the surrounding mountains, people, books, food, general everyday happenings like a melting candle or something that explodes in the oven, and lots of experimentation. I appreciate the willingness of other potters to share their techniques and tips, allowing me to take their ideas in my own direction. It's such a pleasure to create functional pieces for everyday life that will bring a smile to the person using it.
