Artist's Statement: Before moving to the Midwest, I lived in California where the landscapes were dramatic with the ocean and mountains. When I moved to Illinois, the landscapes became quiet and to appreciate their beauty, one must look closely and be still. My work reflects this quietness and simplicity of form with small surprises integrated into the subtlety. I prefer to offer uncomplicated surfaces to allow for different firing techniques and glazes to affect the design and final decoration. I wish for my pieces to be assimilated into everyday use.....a special bowl for your morning cereal or a vase to hold a single flower picked during a stroll around the block.
