I create functional ware in both mid fire porcelain and stoneware. I aim to create soft forms that call out to be picked up and touched and used. Each finished piece usually has a surprise that your eyes may not have noticed, but your hands will find. In creating texture on a piece of smooth stone, I aim to engage with the user every time my pieces are held. A reminder that we are all connected; from my hands and heart to yours. My glazes are inspired by the fun of FiestaWare and the palettes of impressionist paintings.
