Clay, my medium of choice, vibrates with life and is adaptable to change in shape, texture, form, and function. With this adaptability and a passion for detail, I form, sculpt, alter, carve, illustrate, and paint. Making pieces that can provide beauty, and function in daily life, from making a home, to preparing and serving a meal, is an honour.
