Ceramics has become a way of expressing myself. There is no other media where I can express myself in such a fast, spontaneous way. Every throwing line and mark leaves behind information. These marks can talk to you, move your eyes around a piece, and pull you in.
I am a wheel-thrower, and I love to make vases, bowls, plates, mugs, and anything else you can think of. I also love to make sculptural vessels that are never intended for utilitarian use. They are meant to hold an idea, the idea of form and expression. The formal aspects of my work, the size, shape, color, lines involved, and even weight, are all important elements that I strive to emphasize.
