I have been working on the wheel for over 18 years and focus primarily on functional pieces (mugs, bowls, plates, vessels of all kinds), but also love to add a touch of seasonal whimsy in decorative pieces.

Biography

I have been working on the wheel for over 18 years and focus primarily on functional pieces (mugs, bowls, plates, vessels of all kinds), but also love to add a touch of seasonal whimsy in decorative pieces. There are worlds of possibilities in one piece of clay.  I spend my Dreamtime exploring those possibilities.      
 

Artist Statement

I have always been interested in the arts, and ceramics have become my canvas as an artist. I love the feeling of taking a piece of clay, something raw and from the earth and transforming it into something beautiful and functional. I love it when people find a piece that speaks to them. They pick it up, touch it, and try to picture it in their life. That gives me pleasure. I watch them consider whether it fits, for themselves or as a gift and I am satisfied...even if they don’t take it home. I love making vessels, bowls, carafes, cups.   They can be practical and functional or decorative.  They are optimist, full of promise, whether empty or full. I love making enclosed forms that can be shaped and altered to suit my design.  I focus on the design, the form, the volume, the surface in all my pieces.  Texture and colour are also important to me.  I choose my palette based on the seasons.  I am influenced by Asian ceramics, by simple mid-century styles, by clean contemporary styles and by all the pottery that has come before.   As Oscar Wilde said “Imitation is the Sincerest form of flattery…”
